Jailed Ex-President Of El Salvador Gets Two More Years

Former president of El Salvador, Elias Antonio Saca, who is serving a 10-year prison term for corruption, has been sentenced to another two years for bribery.

Saca was found guilty of having offered $10,000 to a court employee to obtain information about a case against him, the attorney general’s office said on Thursday.

Saca, president from 2004 to 2009, was sentenced in September last year after confessing to diverting $301m of public funds during his tenure.

Five years of the sentence were for money laundering, and five for embezzlement. He also has to give back $260m to the state.

During the trial, prosecutors said Saca had appropriated public funds for himself and others, including taking more than $7m for his former party, the right-wing Nationalist Republican Alliance.

The 54-year-old former businessman was detained in October 2016 during his son’s wedding.
