Nicolas Sarkozy once again goes to the judge. Former French president appeals three-year prison sentence

from Paris

Former French President Nicolas Sarkozy it happens one more time before justice in one of many more serious casesS in which it has already been done and will be judged. The one that starts this December 5th and lasts till the middle of the month Hearing on appeal for three-year prison sentence (two suspended and one inside) pronounced against him, his lawyer Thierry Herzog and former magistrate Gilbert Azibert in March 2021 “active corruption” and “influenced pedaling”, As is often the case with Sarkozy, this case is one part of the other and the other is part of the latter. Nicolas Sarkozy and Justice is a careful montage of Russian dolls.

From the Bismuth Case to the Bettencourt Case

The history of this judicial episode is known as “Caso Bismuth” this is tree man twisted together in an arrangement discovered by investigators, which the court convicted them “A Corruption Pact”. According to the indictment, in 2014 Sarkozy and his lawyer Thierry Herzog tried to extract “information” from former magistrate Gilbert Ezibert (former General Counsel of the Court of Cassation) about the ongoing judicial inquiry before the Court of Cassation. Sarkozy was very interested in finding out what was the status of the case in which he was implicated and related

The famous scandal of the heiress of the multinational L’Oreal, Mrs. Bettencourt. Involved in this mega-scandal La Multimillionaria Liliane Bettencourt and alleged money given to members of the French government in 2010 linked to François-Marie Banier and Nicolas Sarkozy.

Investigators had recovered Sarkozy’s diary and the former president wanted information on that case. In exchange for this information, Herzog and Sarkozy promised the magistrate an honorary position in Monaco. Sun and good salary insurance. At the time, police were investigating the Bettencourt case when they suddenly intercepted a telephone call between a telephone line in the name of Thierry Herzog and one Paul Bismuth. Said Bismuth was none other than Nicolas Sarkozy himself, to whom his lawyer provided that line with an invented name.

This Tuesday, December 6, the Court of Appeal will air the famous conversation between the defendants. The views of the prosecution and the defense are completely different. The first sees the “ghost of corruption” and “particularly serious” facts in the case, the second just “the story of an insignificant friendship founded in a criminal case fueled by the rancor and instability of the judicial institution against Nicolas Sarkozy.” In the first trial, the court did not hesitate to choose the first version and made a compromise with the defendants: in March 2021 it sentenced Sarkozy’s lawyer to 3 years in prison, two suspended and 5 years of professional disqualification. ,

It is difficult for the appeal to flourish: the type of evidence, patient tests, attacks against the judicial institution and the system were setting a stalemate for Sarkozy. The court is convinced that Sarkozy and Herzog tried to “influence” the decision of the Court of Cassation in 2014 During the extension after the President’s agenda was recovered regarding the Bettencourt affair. Judges considered in 2021 that the events involving Sarkozy were “particularly serious” because they showed that Sarkozy “used his law and the political and diplomatic connections he built up when he was in power to satisfy a magistrate”. who served their personal interests. Nothing is certain in any case. You never know with politicians and political leaders. They have more life than a cat.

However, whatever the sentence (guilty or acquittal) Nicolas Sarkozy will not stop frequenting the courts. In March 2023, another appeal hearing awaits him, where he has already been sentenced to one year in prison for spending more than authorized expenses during the 2012 election campaign. “Casso Bygmalion”, There is another very heavy issue on his mind: it is the financing of a 2007 presidential campaign that was contributed to by the late Libyan president, Colonel Gaddafi, who was overthrown by Sarkozy and NATO in October 2011. Nicolas Sarkozy and Michel Platini so that Qatar stays with the hosting of the 2022 World Cup. There will be justice or judicial efforts for a while.
