The Sandiganbayan has released a copy of the Fifth Division’s official decision convicting former First Lady and incumbent Ilocos Norte Rep. Imelda Marcos on seven counts of graft.

In the 70-page decision, the anti-graft court found Mrs. Marcos guilty beyond reasonable doubt in criminal case numbers 17287, 17288, 17289, 17290, 22867, 22868, and 22869 for violating Republic Act 3019 or the Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Act when she transferred around $200 million to seven Swiss foundations during her term as governor of Metro Manila in 1975, member of the Batasang Pambansa, and Minister of Human Settlement.


She was acquitted in case number 19225 for failure charge an offense, and in case numbers 17291 and 22870 due to insufficiency of evidence.

The decision was signed by Associate Justice (AJ) Mary Ann Corpus-Mañalac, and concurred by Fifth Division Chair AJ Rafael Lagos and AJ Maria Theresa Mendoza-Arcega.  It was certified by Sandiganbayan Presiding Justice Amparo Cabotaje-Tang. /kga
