WATCH: Bubbly, chatty Imelda back at House plenary
Convicted Ilocos Norte 2nd District Rep. Imelda Marcos is back at the plenary hall of the House of Representatives.
The widow of late dictator Ferdinand Marcos arrived 30 minutes early for the 3 p.m. session of the lower chamber. She secured her temporary freedom after the Sandiganbayan allowed her to post a P150,000-bail despite the anti-graft court’s seven counts of graft verdict against her.
In the video, she can be seen standing and chatting with fellow congressman Manila 3rd District Rep. John Marvin “Yul” Servo, before she flopped into her seat at the front row of the plenary.
Mrs. Marcos earlier justified her absence in the Sandiganbayan’s November 9 judgment by saying she has seven ailments, was “indisposed,” and “suffering from multiple organ infirmities.” But she was seen attending her daughter Imee’s birthday bash on the night of the verdict.
Infamous for collecting 3,000 pairs of luxurious shoes, Mrs.Marcos was sentenced to imprisonment of six years up to 11 years for each count of graft by the Sandiganybayan on Nov. 9./ac
