IMELDA Marcos is planning the largest ever junket since returning to the Philippines in 1991 - a 33-day world tour beginning with Hongkong. But Philippine officials and courts are resisting Marcos' request for permission to travel on the grounds that the former first lady would miss a February 9 deadline to sign an agreement on the repatriation of US$365 million (HK$2.82 billion) in Swiss deposits to Philippine banks. The signing has already been postponed once, when Marcos failed to return in time from a week's trip to Hongkong in early January. Philippine solicitor-general, Mr Raul Goco, said that if no deal was forged by the deadline, ''there will be no agreement anymore''. Apart from Hongkong, Marcos plans to travel to Switzerland, Morocco and Australia - ostensibly to confer with several financial institutions and former cronies of her late husband, ex-president Ferdinand Marcos. Marcos' lawyer, Mr Luis Sillano, said she planned to spend three days in Hongkong and 10 days in each of the other destinations. During her quiet New Year's trip to Hongkong - her third to the territory since her husband's death - Marcos was not thought to have met any of her husband's associates. At the time, she was said to be staying in a suite at the Peninsula Hotel and spending most of her time shopping and dining at expensive restaurants. Government prosecutors have asked the Philippine anti-graft court to compel Marcos to be back in the country for February 9. Under the agreement, the Swiss deposits would be re-deposited in Philippine banks in an escrow account jointly held by Marcos and the Philippine Government, pending a final court ruling or settlement on their ownership.
