3 years imprisonment for former French President Sarkozy

Appeals court in Paris sentenced today, Wednesday, former French head of state Nicolas Sarkozy to three years in prison, one of which is suspended, after he was found guilty of corruption and abuse of influence, in an unprecedented step for a former French president.

Two similar rulings were issued against Tiare Herzog, his historic lawyer, and former Chief Justice Gilbert Aziber.

The Court of Appeal also issued two rulings depriving Sarkozy of his civil rights for three years, making him ineligible for any elections, and preventing Herzog from practicing his work for three years.
