Taiwan’s former leader Ma Ying-jeou was sentenced to four months in jail on Tuesday by the Taiwan High Court forhelping leak classified information, overturning a previous not guilty-verdict from a lower court, according to local media.

Ma was originally acquitted in March last year of leaking secrets and defamation. But he faced a new trial after state prosecutors brought fresh charges against him.

The former leader said Tuesday he will appeal the sentence.
