Sarkozy was found guilty of trying to illegally obtain information from a senior magistrate in 2014

Former French President Nicolas Sarkozy was sentenced to 3 years for corruption. The investigation is what is known as the case of wiretapping, in which the former President of France was found guilty of trying to illegally obtain information from a senior magistrate in 2014 about an ongoing investigation in which he was involved. The year in prison to be served could be turned into a semi-liberty regime or into socially useful jobs.

If the 66-year-old does not move a muscle when reading the device, his wife, Carla Bruni, takes care of herself. “What a madness my love. The fight continues, the truth will emerge, “writes the former premiere dame on Instagram, posting a photo of them together and adding the hashtag #injustice. The trial concerns some wiretapping dating back to 2014, which emerged as part of an investigation into the financing of Sarkozy’s 2007 presidential campaign. According to the reconstructions, the former president and Herzog communicated with cell phones registered in the name of an alias ‘Paul Bismut’. It was from these conversations that the judicial authorities suspected that the two had promised Azibert a place in Monte Carlo in exchange for information.
