Ex-Filipino First Lady Imelda Marcos faces years behind bars

The former First Lady of the Philippines Imelda Marcos has been found guilty of corruption and is facing up to a decade in jail.
An arrest warrant was issued for the Ilocos Norte Representative after she was found guilty of seven counts of corruption
It stems from private organisations Marcos, 89, created while holding a variety of posts in government.
The court's fifth division acquitted her in three counts of corruption.
Marcos was sentenced to imprisonment for a minimum of six years to 11 years and a month maximum.
Marcos is the widow of dictator Ferdinand Marcos and served as First Lady from 1965 to 1986.
She is currently a member of the House of Representatives for Ilocos Norte.
It is thought the former First Lady can post bail while appealing the conviction.
