Ilocos Norte 2nd District Representative Imelda Marcos has been convicted of seven counts of graft by the Sandiganbayan.
The Ilocos Norte politiko has been sentenced to prison for 6 years and 1 month to 11 years for each case for transferring around $200 million to seven Swiss foundations during her term as a member of the defunct Batasang Pambansa and as then Minister of Human Settlements.
Marcos is also perpetually disqualified from holding public office.
The Sandiganbayan 5th Division also issued a warrant of arrest against her.
Marcos can still appeal her conviction.
Graft is also a bailable offense.
