Notary, assistant, sentenced for bribery

A FORMER notary in Baoshan District has been sentenced to 12 years in prison for demanding and accepting 478,000 yuan (US$70,033) in bribes, the district's court said yesterday.

Jiang Guoguang, 48, former dean of Baoshan District Notary Office and vice chairman of Shanghai Notary's Association, asked for the bribes from a contractor who got a remodeling project for the notary office through a false tender.

Li Liping, 39, a notary assistant, was sentenced to 11 years for the same crime.

The notary office rented a new office in February 2006 and planned to find a decoration company through an open bid. Jiang was in charge of the bidding.

False bids

Li recommended Li Guobing, boss of a private company. Jiang agreed, adding that the decorator should offer them a reward, the court heard.

"We discussed asking for 500,000 yuan from the contractor," Jiang said.

Li Guobing agreed to the terms to get the work. The decorator soon got the project through a false tender in which two alleged bidders didn't in fact take part.

To avoid receiving the money directly, Jiang had Li Guobing send money to the account of Huamo Rijing Consulting Co Ltd, formed by Jiang and Li Liping.

The 500,000 yuan was deposited into the consulting company's account and then drawn out by Jiang and Li Liping for supposed business trip costs.

The court learned it was the only business the consulting company had done since it was formed in 2005.
