In 2020, he was sentenced by the Ecuadorian Justice to eight years in prison, accused of receiving bribes to finance electoral campaigns between 2012 and 2016. He denies the accusations and accuses his opponents of political use of Justice, known as lawfare.
Correa moved to Belgium, his wife’s home country, in 2017, and received refugee status in the European country in 2022.
