    Published By:

    A former Chinese justice minister, Fu Zhenghua has been sentenced to death for bribery involving over $16 million.

    The 67-year-old minister who led numerous campaigns against corruption was found guilty by the Intermediate People’s Court of Changchun in northeast China’s Jilin province.

    “The court on Thursday handed Fu a death sentence to be commuted to life in prison after two years. His conviction comes amid an unexpected clampdown on officials ahead of a key Communist Party congress next month.

    “Chinese media disclosed that Fu Zhenghua was handed a suspended death sentence that will be commuted to life imprisonment after two years, with no possibility of bail

    “Ahead of Fu’s court trial in the north-eastern city of Changchun, China’s anti-graft agency revealed earlier this year that Fu had also been part of a “political gang” of Sun Lijun – one of the most prominent officials from the security apparatus to be targeted since Zhou’s conviction in 2015.”
