The controversy began when Secretary Antonio Raquiza of the Public Works, Transportation and Communications went into a contract with Ezzet Mosden without the knowledge of the Postmaster General Enrico Palomar. It was a simple overlapping of functions by government agencies. It is always the Postmaster General who has the authority to enter into any contract that deals with the printing and/or sale of Philippine postage stamps, not the Secretary of Public Works, Transportation and Communications. "The International Civil and Human Rights Year Issue" consists of a 1-cent stamp depicting the entire Kennedy clan composed of fourteen family members that includes the patriarch Joseph P. Kennedy and Peter Lawford, a movie actor and brother-in-law; the 2-cents features the brothers John and Robert Kennedy; the 3-cent stamps shows the family of Robert Kennedy; the fourth, a 5-peso stamp highlights President John Kennedy delivering his presidential speech with President Lyndon R. Johnson seated beside him; the last of the set with a ten-peso value shows foreign dignitaries at the funeral procession of John Kennedy. Two souvenir sheets complete the set. The first is valued at 5 cents with a similar design of the 10 peso stamp while the second one is valued at 10 pesos with the 1-cent stamp design.The Kennedy stamps along with the Mexico Olympic issues popularly called the "Mosden Stamps" were never issued as postage stamps in the Philippines. But it is interesting to note that a lot of these stamps went to the hands of stamp collectors worldwide. The Philippine Postal Administration never granted recognition to the Mosden stamps as bonafide postal papers. They claimed that the stamps were printed without the approval of the postal administration, no official personnel was present to check and oversee the printing of the stamps, and the quantity of the stamps printed was not known to the postal administration."
