Former French President Nicolas Sarkozy has been sentenced to three years in prison after being convicted of corruption and influence peddling.
On Monday, a court in Paris sentenced him to three years in jail, two of them suspended — although it’s unlikely he will be moved to prison as the term can be served under conditions such as house arrest. Sarkozy, who has denied all allegations against him throughout the trial, can also appeal the decision, as the ex-number one man in France, who served as president from 2007 to 2012, was accused of having offered a judge a plum job in exchange for confidential information related to another trial he was facing. Although he is officially retired from politics, Sarkozy remains a potential contender for the 2022 presidential campaign, with his allies, regularly hinting at a potential comeback. Monday’s court decision deals a serious blow to that prospect.
During the court hearings, which took place last fall, he and his associates argued that the trial was built on “lies” and politically motivated.
Phone conversations recorded between Sarkozy and Herzog made investigators suspect the former French leader had offered to use his contacts to get the judge Azibert a coveted position in Monaco, in exchange for information about the investigation into the Bettencourt case.
