SENTENCED IN ABSENTIA: Equatorial Guinea Vice President Teodrin Obiang

A French court has handed down a three-year suspended jail term to Equatorial Guinea’s Vice President Teodorin Obiang for corruption and embezzlement

The 48-year-old, known for his lavish tastes, is the son of the oil-rich West African country’s president.

He was absent from the trial but his assets in France will be seized, including a mansion on Avenue Foch in Paris. He also got a suspended fine of 30m euros (£27m; $35m)
