“My life is in ruins”
On Thursday, the network man was only a shadow of himself. Weakened by gout and detention, he appeared in a wheelchair and held green prisoner, unable to stand up in front of the judge.
“My professional and financial life is in ruins, I feel pain and shame,” he said, explaining that he had “had time to think” since his arrest. “I know it’s my driving that brought me here,” he added, without apologizing.
