Former senior political advisor stands trial for graft

Beijing, Feb 3 (IANS) A former senior political advisor in China’s Liaoning province was on Wednesday under trial in a lower court on bribery charges.

A court in Heilongjiang province began hearing the case of Chen Tiexin, former vice chairman of the Liaoning provincial Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference, Xinhua reported.

From 2008 to 2013, Chen took bribes of cash and goods worth a total amount of 23.7 million yuan ($3.6 million) when he was secretary of Chaoyang city Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC).

He helped companies or individuals offering the bribes with construction projects, bank loans and promotions. Chen admitted the charges and confessed in court.

Chen was expelled from the CPC and dismissed from public office in October 2014 following an internal party investigation, before the Harbin city procuratorate filed the lawsuit against him.
