Malacañang: Guilty verdict vs Imelda reminds public officials about accountability

Nov 9, 2018 @ 16:10

Malacañang said the conviction of Ilocos Norte 2nd District Representative Imelda Marcos of seven counts of graft proves that the corrupt will be held accountable.

The Ilocos Norte politiko was found guilty by the Sandiganbayan 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.

The Sandiganbayan has issued a warrant of arrest against Marcos.

“We treat this decision by the anti-graft court as a good reminder to all public servants that public office is a public trust and that we are all accountable to the people we serve,” Panelo said.

“As servants of the people, we must therefore carry out our duties not only with professionalism and fidelity but most importantly, with integrity,” he added.
