Putuo government boss behind bars

THE former office director of the Putuo District government was jailed for 11 years today for accepting bribes worth 720,000 yuan (US$105,417).

Shanghai No. 2 Intermediate People's Court also confiscated 100,000 yuan of Yin's personal property.

The court said it decided a lighter punishment on Yin, a 55-year-old Anhui Province native, due to his family's return of the bribes and "good attitude." But it denied Yin that had surrendered himself to the disciplinary and judicial departments.

Former Putuo District director Cai Zhiqiang, for whom Yin served as a go-between, was jailed for 14 years earlier this month for accepting 2.84 million yuan in bribes.

Yin took advantage of his government positions to help private company owners gain profits from 2005 to 2009.

The company owners organized gambling parties and dinner appointments for Cai and Yin and presented them with cash in the name of "activity fees," the court heard.
