Sarkozy is the first former French president to be tried for corruption during his presidency. But he is not the only ex-president convicted of corruption.

Sarkozy’s predecessor Jacques Chirac (1932-2019) was once given a suspended prison sentence after his presidency. But this was due to cheating at the time when he was the mayor of Paris before.

The verdict in the Sarkozy case will follow at around nine o’clock on Wednesday morning. Then it will become clear if the prison sentence, which is not really a prison sentence, will be dropped. Sarkozy has always maintained his innocence.

Afgelopen jaar was Nicolas Sarkozy nog samen met de huidige Franse president Emmanuel Macron. Hij woonde een overleg bij over de oorlog in Oekraïne. Ook oud-president François Hollande was daarbij aanwezig.
