http://www.euronews.net/ Guilty of embezzlement -- the verdict making Jacques Chirac the first former French head of state to be convicted of a crime since the end of World War Two. A court in Paris gave him a two-year suspended jail term meaning he will not spend any time behind bars.
Chirac was tried on charges of diverting finances into phantom jobs for political allies when he was Mayor of Paris between 1977 and 1995.
