Akbayan Partylist lauded the Sandiganbayan decision finding Imelda Marcos guilty of graft. Marcos is guilty for seven counts of violation of the anti-graft law.
"This legal victory is a two-decade struggle by the brave Filipino people. This is a victory against historical revisionism. This comes at the heels of a time when the Marcos family is desperately trying to revise history and clear their name of the crimes they have committed," Akbayan Chairperson Emeritus Etta Rosales said.
The decision is based on Imelda Marcos' illegal financial activities as governor of Metro Manila.
"This is retribution. The Marcoses thought they could get away with their crimes. They have after all institutionalized impunity within the criminal justice system as dictator over the past years," Etta Rosales added.
