The court also sentenced Diack to another two years of suspended jail time and fined him 500,000 euros ($590,000).Diack was found guilty of multiple corruption charges and of breach of trust but acquitted of a money laundering charge.At Diack's trial in June, prosecutors requested a four-year jail term and a fine of 500,000 euros.
