Madrid. (apro). A French court has convicted Nicolas Sarkozy, the former French President (Nicolas Sarkozy), for illegally funding his presidential campaign in 2012. Six months later, he was convicted of corruption as well as peddling. He was sentenced for the crime of influence to three years imprisonment. .
The verdict was made a day after Sarkozy visited Spain, where he participated in the National Congress of the People’s Party, where President Pablo Casado praised his political management and set an example for him.
