Corrupt official appeals against 14 years' jail

A FORMER vice dean of Shanghai Informatization Office has appealed against his 14-year jail term for corruption involving a total of US$95,000.

Shanghai No.2 Intermediate People's Court held a second trial for Miao Jinhe, 44, yesterday, today's Shanghai Morning Post reported.

The first verdict was decided by Jing'an District People's Court last October, convicting Miao of embezzling 50,000 yuan (US$7,324) of public funds in May 2006 and taking bribes of 400,000 yuan and US$30,000.

Miao yesterday denied the charge of embezzlement, saying the money should be ruled as taking bribes, which is subject to a lighter punishment.

He also denied taking 400,000 yuan and US$30,000 in bribes, saying the money was offered by his friends as a reward after he helped their businesses.
