Ex-French President Sarkozy awaits verdict in second corruption trial

3 monate vor


Former French President Nicolas Sarkozy will hear on Thursday whether he is to face up to six months in jail after a corruption trial in Paris. Sarkozy is accused of illegally overspending on his losing 2012 presidential campaign. In March he was sentenced to three years in prison in a separate case - also for corruption - and securing favours from a judge. Despite this, he remains hugely popular in France.
