The media published videos of the beginning of the sentence of former French President Nicolas Sarkozy, who spent one year in prison, which he spends at his home in the most expensive neighborhood in Paris.
In the videos, police officers appear near the house where the former president is serving his sentence, under heavy security.
On Thursday, a Paris court sentenced former French President Nicolas Sarkozy to a year in prison after he was found guilty of illegally financing his election campaign in the 2012 French presidential election.
For his part, Sarkozy said on social media, following the ruling: “I only ask that the law that applies to me be like any other citizen… I appeal to the court to apply justice. I will take this path to the end.”
