Manila — The same day the Sandiganbayan convicted the former First Lady Imelda Marcos of 7 counts of graft, she attended the birthday party of her daughter Imee Marcos with some government officials.

In a photo, Marcos is seen standing next to presidential daughter and Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio and with San Juan City Mayor Guia Gomez during the birthday party of her daughter, Ilocos Norte Gov. Imee Marcos.
Other photos showed the 89-year old Ilocos Norte representative seated in a table with Solicitor General Jose Calida, House Speaker Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo and former Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile.
Earlier that day, the anti-graft court sentenced Marcos, who is Ilocos Norte Representative, to a maximum of 77 years in jail for committing seven counts of graft. An arrest warrant is expected to be issued next week, but the Sandiganbayan said she can post bail.
