This was the common sentiment of opposition senators and other officials who lauded the Sandiganbayan's decision sentencing Marcos to a maximum of 77 years in jail for committing seven counts of graft.

Imelda Marcos in particular was known for her flaunting her opulent lifestyle while the country languished in poverty and civil unrest.
Government prosecutor Ryan Quilala told reporters that Marcos and her husband opened and managed Swiss foundations in violation of the Philippine Constitution, using aliases in a bid to hide stolen funds.
"The couple opened all those accounts in Switzerland, and they used pseudonyms to hide their ownership".
She was given 30 days by the anti-graft court to explain her absence during the promulgation. "The decision is a welcome relief and mitigates the pain of the past but only a full and voluntary acknowledgment by the Marcoses of their deeds can we say that closure is coming", he added.
Marcos critics rejoiced at the news of the conviction, which came almost three decades after the case was filed in 1991.
