Instead, the widow of the late dictator Ferdinand Marcos instead was waiting for the shoe to drop in another matter, one that could land her in jail. On Thursday, the Filipino Supreme Court upheld a lower court’s 1993 conviction of Marcos, 68, on a corruption charge stemming from the leasing of property owned by a government-run commuter railway. She was ordered to pay $4.7 million in damages and faces nine to 12 years in prison. Marcos contended on Sunday that some of the money in the graft case was used to build a hospital for the poor.
