FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “Nicolas Sarkozy charged: Corruption conviction rocks French conservatives” – below is their description.
Nicolas #Sarkozy’s conservative political allies have rallied to the defence of the former French president after a court convicted him of #corruption, but his leftist foes hailed the verdict, saying justice had been served. A #Paris court on Monday ruled that Sarkozy, 66, had tried to bribe a judge after leaving office, and to peddle influence in exchange for confidential information about an investigation into his 2007 campaign finances.FRANCE 24 English YouTube Channel
