Philip­pines’ ex-first lady to ap­peal court’s graft rul­ing

Fiji Sun - - World / Asia News - Reuters

The Philip­pines’ anti-cor­rup­tion court on Fri­day or­dered the ar­rest of for­mer first lady Imelda Mar­cos af­ter find­ing her guilty on seven counts of graft dur­ing the two-decade rule of her hus­band and for­mer dic­ta­tor, Fer­di­nand Mar­cos. But Mar­cos, 89, fa­mous for a huge col­lec­tion of shoes, jew­ellery and art­work, can avoid ar­rest and re­main free if she ap­peals the de­ci­sion and if de­nied, she can chal­lenge it at the Supreme Court.
