Official receives suspended death over corruption in Beijing

BEIJING, April 29 (Xinhua) -- A former senior poverty alleviation official was sentenced to death with a two-year reprieve by a court in Beijing on Wednesday.

Fan Zengyu, former director of the foreign investment project center under the State Council Leading Group Office of Poverty Alleviation and Development, was convicted of taking bribes, embezzlement and swindling , according to the Beijing No. 1 Intermediate People's Court.

Fan was found guilty of embezzling 2.6 million (425,000 U.S. dollars) donated by Ding Yuxin,a businesswoman known under the previous name Ding Shumiao, to the poverty reduction office of the central government.

Fan was also convicted of accepting bribes or swindling money from Ding or one of her subordinate clerks between 2009 and 2011. The total sum was 56 million yuan (9.2 million U.S. dollars), according to the court.

All of Fan's personal assets were confiscated. Fan stood trial in January.

Ding was the main power broker in the corruption case of former railway minister Liu Zhijun. She was jailed for 20 years in December for bribery and illegal business operations, while Liu was given a suspended death sentence in July 2013 for bribery and abuse of power.
