Imelda Marcos found guilty of graft

The 89-year-old widow of former Philippines dictator Ferdinand Marcos was not present in court Friday when it was announced that she had been found guilty of seven counts of graft.

Marcos was sentenced to imprisonment for a minimum of six years to 11 years and a month maximum. She was a no-show at her case's promulgation so she will be given 30 days to give a reason as to why.

This is all the information we have so far but watch this space as this story develops.

Albayalde assured that Mrs. Marcos will be treated as a normal detainee if she will be taken to the PNP Custodial Center in Camp Crame, Quezon City.

Marcos said in a statement that the decision was being studied by one of her lawyers who notified the Marcos family that he intends to appeal the decision.

Marcos, who is now a member of the House of Representatives, is running for a governor post in next year's general election.

"She can elevate it to the Supreme Court if she sees grave abuse of discretion in the Sandiganbayan's decision".

The family fled to Hawaii in 1986 when the army and the Philippine people turned against the president in a bloodless popular revolt.

He was accused of amassing more than US$10 billion while in office and died in exile in 1989. The Marcos family is a known supporter of President Rodrigo Duterte.

Ferdinand Marcos ruled the Philippines for two decades, placing the country under martial law in 1972, during which time thousands of opponents were jailed, killed or disappeared.

Duterte has acknowledged that Imee Marcos, the couple's daughter and a provincial governor, backed his presidential candidacy.
