The French President Jacques Chirac, about 80 years-old has been sentenced now, for embezzlement done in 1995 when he was mayor of Paris. France, a European country, always considered a rich and highly advanced state, revered in the world has proved once again to take place at the highest pedestal now in horizon of justice and fair play. It was France, which being the forward-most defence against Hitler forces in World War-II lost its entire country to the Axis in only eleven days, yet it was back to glory well before the end of war. The punishment indicted to its President for his crime is an exemplary feat. See our country, we are failing in all aspects At least, we can follow France in the field of rule of law and justice.
