0 49

Ilocos Norte 2nd District Representative Imelda Marcos is back at the House of Representatives after being a no-show last week following her conviction of seven counts of graft.

The Ilocos Norte politiko was found guilty of transferring around $200 million to seven Swiss foundations during her term as a member of the defunct Batasang Pambansa and as former Minister of Human Settlements.

Marcos was sentenced to up to seven years in prison for each count of graft.

The Sandiganbayan on November 16 granted Marcos temporary freedom, allowing her to post a bail bond of P150,000.

The anti-graft court is still deciding with finality on her post-conviction bail.
