The Presidential Commission on Good Government (PCGG) has lauded the Office of the Ombudsman over the fraft conviction of former First Lady and now Ilocos Norte Rep. Imelda Marcos.

“PCGG congratulates the Office of the Ombudsman, especially the handling Special Prosecutors, for the successful prosecution of the case,” it said in a statement Monday (November 12).

While the commission acknowledges Marcos’ right to appeal the Sandiganbayan’s decision, it said it will continue cooperating with the Office of the Ombudsman regarding the case.

The Sandiganbayan Fifth Division found Marcos guilty of graft over her alleged financial interests in foundations based in Switzerland when she was Minister of Human Settlements and an interim member of Congress during the presidency of her husband, Ferdinand Marcos.

The former First Lady was sentenced to a minimum of six years and one month to a maximum prison sentence of 11 years for each of the seven counts of graft she was found guilty of.

The Sandiganbayan, however, has yet to issue an arrest warrant against Marcos.
