Imelda Marcos Disqualified for Corruption Condemnation | world news

The former First Lady of the Philippines, known for her lavish shoe collection, was found guilty of corruption in seven cases during her twenty-year tenure.

Imelda Marcos, 89, is sentenced to six to eleven years in prison for each transplant. The charges, which are the result of a court case that has been going on for two decades, refer to private foundations established in Switzerland between 1968 and 1986 in public offices.

The arrest of Marcos, who had not participated in the trial, was ordered immediately after the verdict. However, she may remain on bail while she addresses the conviction.

She has also been permanently excluded from public office by being convicted, which means that she must resign from her current position in the House of Representatives, where she will take a third term of office.

In the 21 years that President Ferdinand Marcos was in power, he and his wife became notorious for accumulating billions of dollars and distributing the funds to Swiss bank accounts. In particular, Imelda Marcos was known for displaying her opulent lifestyle while the country was in poverty and civil unrest.
