Australia Acknowledges Solid Evidence

AUSTRALIA yesterday called the 10-year jail term handed out to its citizen Stern Hu as harsh but not surprising, given the evidence.

Canberra said the Shanghai trial would not affect ties with Beijing.

"On any measure this is a very tough sentence," Australian Foreign Minister Stephen Smith said, while acknowledging evidence that they had received bribes.

"It is a tough sentence by Australian standards. As far as Chinese sentencing practice is concerned, it is within the ambit or within the range."
