World Leaders Who’ve Been Charged With a Crime or Jailed

From a story on by Dave Lawler and Ivana Saric headlined “Former leaders have been jailed or charged all over the world”:

Former President Trump declared after being indicted in New York that “THE USA IS NOW A THIRD WORLD NATION,” a statement echoed by his sons and many of his supporters.

The big picture: In reality, leaders who left office since 2000 have been jailed or prosecuted in at least 78 countries — including in democracies like France, Israel and South Korea.

Since 1980, around half of the world’s countries have had at least one such case, and that’s not counting impeachments or coups.
