Imelda Marcos found guilty on 7 counts of graft
A Philippine court has found former first lady Imelda Marcos guilty of graft and ordered her arrest in a rare conviction among many corruption cases she's likely to appeal to avoid jail and losing her seat in Congress. She is allowed to apply for bail. She was acquitted on a further three counts of graft.
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.
"He (Lazaro) is presently studying the decision and has advised us that he intends to file a motion for reconsideration", Marcos said.
Marcos and her representatives did not attend the legal hearing on Friday.
In the 21 years that President Ferdinand Marcos was in power, he and his wife became infamous for amassing billions of dollars, with funds funnelled into Swiss bank accounts. The Marcos family is a known supporter of President Rodrigo Duterte.
Duterte has acknowledged that Imee Marcos, the couple's daughter and a provincial governor, backed his presidential candidacy.
