A Chinese court has ruled that any officials found guilty of embezzling or accepting bribes of three million Yuan (460,000 US dollars) or more will face a possible death sentence, a report said.
“The penalty will be reserved for extremely serious cases with extremely vile impact,’’ the Supreme People’s Court and Supreme People’s Procuratorate said in a Monday ruling.
Meanwhile, Chinese President Xi Jinping launched his “tigers and flies” purge over three years ago.
The campaign ostensibly aimed to punish corrupt officials in both high and low positions, and has lasted longer and struck at a more senior level than many analysts expected.
Report says suspended death sentences, which in China are often commuted to life in prison, have been handed down in some corruption cases already.
A military court sentenced Gu Junshan, the former deputy head of the military’s logistics department, to death for corruption with a two-year reprieve in October 2015.
Former minister of railways, Liu Zhijun, was sentenced to death with a two-year reprieve, for bribery and abuse of power, in July 2013.
Su Shulin, governor of the prosperous eastern province of Fujian at the time, was placed under investigation for “serious violations” in October 2015.
Bo Xilai, former party chief of the southern Chongqing municipality, was sentenced to life in prison in September 2013, after having been found guilty of corruption, embezzlement and abuse of power.
Sad Day As Ghanaians Bid Ebony Reigns Goodbye Forever
Today, March 24, 2018, will go down as one of the saddest days in the life of some Ghanaians, and the Ghana Music Industry.
The late Ebony Reigns will be laid to rest today at the Osu Cemetery after a funeral service to be held at the forecourt of the State House in Accra.
Ghanaians will miss the 20-year-old musician who took the music industry by storm within a spate of two years.
Her hit songs ‘Maame Hw3’, ‘Hustle’, ‘Sponsor’, and the many others are still enjoying massive airplay.
Despite all the controversies that surrounded her short but successful career, Ebony was focused, and never shifted from her career dream. Who would not miss Ebony?
She died painfully on February 8, 2018, on the Sunyani-Kumasi Highway in a gory accident which also claimed the lives of her bodyguard, and personal assitant.
Meanwhile, the bodyguard, Lance Corporal Vondee Francis Atsu, was buried yesterday, March 23, 2018 in Mafi Adidome, in the Volta Region.
Franky Kuri was buried earlier in March.
