A court in Croatia has sentenced former prime minister Ivo Sanader to 10 years in prison.
 
Sanader, who ruled Croatia from 2003 until a shock resignation in 2009, fled the country shortly before several indictments for corruption were issued.
 
Arrested in Austria the following December, he was extradicted in 2011, with the whole trial taking a year.
 
Sanader was found guilty of war profiteering and accepting bribes from two foreign companies, Austria’s Hypo Alpe Adria bank, and Hungary’s MOL energy.
 
Sanader has always protested his innocence and says he will appeal. He was also fined nearly five and a half million euros.
 
He also stands accused in several other corruption cases.
