#1 Imelda Marcos Sentenced to 77 years in Jail

Postby fountainhall » Sat Nov 10, 2018 11:28 pm

32 years after she and her murdering, thieving husband were ousted by People Power, Imelda Marcos has finally been found guilty in Manila on several counts of graft. She has been sentenced to up to 77 years in jail.

Marcos is believed with her dictator husband to have stashed away between US$5 and $10 billion during their time ruling and ruining The Philippines economy. Of that sum, only $3.2 billion has ever been discovered. Congresswoman Marcos - as she has been for some years - remains a beloved figure in some part of the country. She can appeal the verdicts and has been granted bail. At the age of 89, though, it is unlikely she will ever see the inside of a jail cell.
