0

dpa/GNA – Former French president, Nicolas Sarkozy, plans to appeal against his conviction for bribery, his lawyer Jacqueline Laffont has announced.

The sentence of one year’s detention and two years suspended was “extremely harsh” and “unjustified,” Laffont said.

Sarkozy does not have to go to prison and can serve the sentence at home under electronic surveillance.

The 66-year-old “obviously” contests the conviction, his lawyer added.
