China: Nanjing Gives 10 Years in Jail for Taking ¥7 Million in Bribes

China’s crackdown on corruption is only intensifying, as can be seen from a Nanjing court this week handing out a lengthy period behind bars for an official who accepted bribes totalling the value of only that of a generous apartment.

It was on 2 November that the Nanjing Intermediate People’s Court publicly sentenced former Party Secretary and Director of the Fujian Supervision Bureau of China Banking and Insurance Regulatory Commission, Qi Xinzheng, finding him guilty of accepting bribes totalling more than ¥6.91 million.

The investigation found that from 2016 to 2019, the defendant took advantage of his position to provide assistance to both institutions and individuals.
