Convicted ex-French President Sarkozy on charges of corruption

Paris-ALsharqiya, March 2: The French judiciary has sentenced former French President Nicolas Sarkozy to 3 years in prison, including one year in force, on charges of corruption and abuse of influence in what is known as the wiretapping case. The former French president was found guilty of pledging to help a former judge get a job in Monaco in exchange for secret information about an investigation that targeted him with the help of a telephone line registered in Paul Bismuth. Sarkozy, who led France from 2007 to 2012, has denied wrongdoing and said he was the victim of a stalking by Malian prosecutors who used excessive means to intrude on his affairs. Thus, Sarkozy became the second French president to be convicted under the Fifth Republic, after the late President Jacques Chirac, and the first president to issue an enforceable judgment against him.
