RUNNING HEAD: “CONTROVERSIAL” YAMASHITA TREASURE
2
According to Campoamor II, Gonzalo A,(2009) , it is a story about Yamashita treasure, a hoard of
gold bullion which was said to hidden by the Japanese troops before there surrender. It is a story of
two characters Indiana Jones and Charles McDougald in a dungeon. Men dug for a period of 10-13
days in search for the treasure. A man got killed buy McDougald where they claimed he was killed by
a sand trap which was similar to trick devices found in the ancient Egyptian tombs. At the digging site
were guards assigned with the responsibility of offering security since the government had a share
amounting to 75 percent if for any case the treasure was found. In the search for the treasure,
McDougald was not the first one to seek for the treasure. There before was the president Ferdinand E.
Marcos who is believed to have discovered a portion of the treasure worth $14 billion.
For many years from 1945, many treasure hunters had searched thoroughly for it since the Japanese
had collected a lot of gold in the entire southeast of which many people thought it true. It has been
said over years by the famous Lore, Gen that Yamashita had hidden the treasure in 172 places before
his surrender. It took place around the entire Philippines. According to Campoamor, Gonzalo A.
(2009), over 80 treasure-hunting permits had been offered in the last year of which were among two
to three applications received per day in the office of the president, the information was released by
executive secretary Catalino Macaraig.
With the help of maps and other coded documents, there are many stories of individuals who are
believed to have been involved in the treasure search one of whom is a newspaper columnist and the
other one a retired general who is said to have dug behind a hospital around the Manila military camp,
the president son, an active hunter. Later Mr Marcos made an attempt to send 400 soldiers to help a
man who had obtained the map said to come from a supernatural source.
In summation, when Mr Mc Dougald was asked about his source of information, he became too
mysterious and was believed to have been using the same documents that have been used by Mr
Marcos and an American retired general John K. Singlaub who spent several months in collaboration
with the anti-communist agitation (Chaikin, David, and J. C. Sharman (2009). However, Mr
Fukumitsu declined to explain why he had paid several visits. At last, Mr Fukumitsu declined to tell
why he had called a conference meeting to insist there is nothing known as Yamashita treasure.
