In this Jan. 26, 2013 photo, Carmencita Florentino, 64, holds newspaper clippings during an interview in her home at a poor neighborhood of Tatalon, Quezon city, northeast of Manila, Philippines. Florentino was jailed twice, in 1977 and 1978, during the Martial Law period imposed by the late Philippine strongman Ferdinand Marcos. More than 9,000 victims will be awarded compensation using $246 million that the Philippine government recovered from Marcos' ill-gotten wealth. But all claims will still have to evaluated by an independent commission and the amount each will receive will depend of the abuse suffered. (AP Photo/Bullit Marquez)
