Inmate loses appeal after seeking bribes

A PRISONER in Shanghai has lost an appeal to shorten his life sentence after investigators found he had asked two fellow inmates for bribes of 4,000 yuan (US$586.02) to improve their jail conditions.

The inmate surnamed Sun also had his good-conduct award scrapped by Tilanqiao prison and the two prisoners who offered him money were also punished, today's Shanghai Morning Post reported.

Sun's application for a deduction of jail term based on his good conduct was rejected, the report said.

An investigation by Shanghai People's Procuratorate's 2nd branch proved that Sun, who had good relations with prison officers through his job, asked for 2,000 yuan from a prisoner surnamed Pan to help him get a shorter sentence.

Sun also took 2,000 yuan from another prisoner surnamed Zhang to help him change jobs. Sun was sentenced to life in jail in 1997 for contractual fraud, and Pan is serving 10 years for robbery. Zhang is serving eight years for intentional injury.
