Fu Zhenghua: China Ex-justice Minister Jailed For Life Over $16m Bribe by HonNL: 2:55pm On Sep 22
China's former justice minister Fu Zhenghua, who spearheaded several corruption-fighting campaigns, has been jailed for bribery.

Fu pleaded guilty in July to accepting 117 million yuan ($14.7m; $16.5m) in gifts and money for personal gain.

On Thursday, a court in Changchun gave him a death sentence to be commuted to life in prison after two years.

His conviction comes amid a sudden crackdown on officials ahead of a key Communist Party congress next month.

China's ruling party holds the event once every five years and this time President Xi Jinping is expected to be given a historic third term and consolidate his hold on power.

Fu's jailing on Thursday follows the sentencing of three other former provincial police chiefs this week. All four men are not only accused of corruption but also of being disloyal to Mr Xi.

They are all alleged to have been part of a political circle led by another ex-security figurehead, Sun Lijun. Sun, who is currently awaiting his sentence, was said to have created his own political faction through helping elevate other officials in the security apparatus.

Xi Jinping famously promised to take out both "tigers and flies", meaning corrupt cadres at all levels of the party. Surely, the public might ask, the "tigers" have already been eliminated?

Fu's case is among several that have been widely covered. He was China's justice minister from 2018 to 2020, after a career where he worked his way up from being a policeman to the deputy head of China's Ministry of Public Security.

He had led several high-profile investigations into corrupt politicians - including a probe which brought down Zhou Yongkang, one of the most powerful officials in recent years to be convicted of bribery.

But in October last year, the party's internal watchdog announced it was investigating Fu for "serious violations of discipline and national laws".

He was dismissed from public office and then in March this year expelled from the Communist Party. He was arrested a month later on the corruption charges.

Prosecutors said he took advantage of his authority to seek gains for others and himself on business contracts, official positions and even legal cases. He was accused of hiding evidence in a criminal case that involved his younger brother.

Sun, the alleged power broker of the group, was a vice minister of the Ministry of Public Security until 2020.

China's democracy is one of a kind, the way they jail corrupt politicians ehn is one reason why US have not negatively influenced the country.

Not saying Chinese govt isn't corrupt ooo but they have strong military in place that wil make even the USA to think twice before invading it just like they invaded most third world countries through coup. And that strong military is as a result of strong leadership.

That's why here in Africa, any leader that rises to save and secure his country is labelled a dictator and killed

Wow. That should be the punishment for our corrupt politicians but here we reward them. That’s less than 10billion naira o. For instance, Orji Kalu who was sentenced to 12yrs jail for N7.2bn fraud, served 6months only, kept his job as a senator whilst collecting full salary during incarceration & still retained his job after his release. He’s now the chief whip! Nigeria rewards criminals.

Kai...This is exactly what Nigerian politicians should be bagging 24/7 so that people vying for any post or appointments would be men and women of integrity...

Funny how Nigerian politicians would copy other countries policies and leave out this main one... angry

Is Tinubu the only corrupt person in Nigeria?

What about the company driver that will present a fake receipt and claim that he bought petrol when he did not...or the security guard that will siphon diesel from the generator in the office to go and sell or the bank manager that will ask for 5% kickback from a customer before approving a bank loan?! undecided
