Sandigan to start forwarding records of Imelda Marcos’ graft case to SC
The Sandiganbayan has started the process of forwarding records in the graft case of Ilocos Norte Representative Imelda Marcos to the Supreme Court, where she will challenge her conviction for allegedly creating Swiss foundations to benefit her family.
The Fifth Division confirmed on Tuesday that Marcos’ notice of appeal has been “given due course.”
It said the records are being photocopied for the Sandiganbayan archives, but the original copies will be immediately transmitted to the SC upon completion.
This development comes after the Sandiganbayan granted the motion of Marcos to avail of post-conviction remedies, allowing the 89-year-old widow of former President Ferdinand Marcos to either appeal her conviction at the anti-graft court or raise her case to the SC.
