Former Pudong vice governor gets life sentence

FORMER Pudong New Area vice governor Kang Huijun was sentenced to life in prison this morning by the Shanghai No.1 Intermediate People's Court.

The court also sentenced his wife Wang Xiaoqin to a five-year term and took back all their illegal income and property, worth more than 18 million yuan (US$2.63 million).

Kang, 51, was arrested in 2007. Prosecutors at Shanghai No.1 Intermediate People's Court charged him for accepting nearly 6 million yuan (US$881,057) in bribes and illegally owning properties worth 11 million yuan.

Kang, who became known as "Pudong's landlord," admitted the bribery charges but denied the amount had been so large.

Kang was appointed deputy governor of Pudong New Area and also Party secretary of the Jinqiao Export Processing Zone in 2004. Before that, he headed the Lujiazui Group and the Shanghai Lujiazui Finance and Trade Zone Development Co Ltd. For six years he was in charge of all major land deals and transactions in the Lujiazui area.
