Court sentences former president of El Salvador in bribery case

UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — Former El Salvador President Elias Antonio El Sakka has been sentenced to two years in prison by a court for bribery, the prosecutor’s office said on Thursday.

The court found Sakka, who is now serving a 10-year sentence for involvement in wasting public money and money laundering, guilty of bribing a court official in exchange for information about a lawsuit against him.

A judge will consider whether the two years of his imprisonment will be added to his current sentence.
