After losing his corruption appeal, Nicolas Sarkozy will wear a device.

Former French President Nicolas Sarkozy’s appeal against his corruption conviction has been denied.

However, the Paris Court of Appeals ruled that he could serve his sentence at home by donning a tag.

In a separate case, Sarkozy was sentenced to three years in prison in 2021, with two suspended, for attempting to influence a judge.

The 68-year-old was the first former president of France to receive a prison sentence.

Following Wednesday’s judgment, Sarkozy’s attorney stated that she would file a new appeal with France’s highest court, the Court of Cassation.

“Nicolas Sarkozy is innocent,” stated attorney Jacqueline Laffont. We will see this through to the end.

In 2014, after he had left office, the former president was convicted of attempting to obtain information about a case by offering the judge a prestigious position.

A three-year prohibition on holding public office has been placed on him.

This is one of several corruption cases involving Nicolas Sarkozy, who denies misconduct.

Prosecutors demanded his trial this month on suspicions that the Libyan government illegally funded his 2007 presidential campaign. However, investigating magistrates have the final say on whether or not a case should proceed to prosecution.

Until 2014, Nicolas Sarkozy served as president for a single five-year term. During a presidency overshadowed by the global financial crisis, he enacted strict anti-immigration policies and sought to reform France’s economy.

Critics dubbed him “bling-bling” because they perceived his leadership style to be too brash, celebrity-focused, and hyperactive for a position steeped in tradition and majesty.

Hydrogen driving: We test the fuel cell Ineos Grenadier

Electric vehicles are the future, and everyone agrees on that. That is the mantra offered to motorists who are encouraged to convert to EVs. However, not everyone agrees that the future of motoring will be entirely dominated by plug-in electric vehicles; some believe hydrogen fuel cells may play an essential role. Ineos, owned by buccaneering boss Sir Jim Ratcliffe, is already developing a robust 4x4 EV called the Fusilier, but it is also considering hydrogen power.
