Official admits bribes

THE former deputy director of the Shanghai Justice Bureau admitted accepting about 1.9 million yuan (US$278,184) in bribes when he appeared in court yesterday.

Prosecutors said Shi Qiubo, 57, accepted 1.87 million yuan from a couple to direct business to the wife, who worked for a travel agency, and help the husband gain promotion.

He also accepted 30,000 yuan from a wedding service company manager for his help, prosecutors said.

The Shanghai No. 1 Intermediate People's Court held a full-day hearing yesterday. No verdict was announced.

Shi, who was made deputy director in February 2002, was in charge of bureau officials' overseas visits.

In 2004 he became acquainted with Sui Jun, an officer in the Jing'an District Justice Bureau, and Sui's wife, Wang Chunwei.

Shi recommended Wang take charge of the overseas travel business of the bureau and other departments. Shi was also instrumental in Sui's promotion to deputy director of the notary office.

In 2005 Shi asked to borrow 1 million yuan from the couple. They understood he wouldn't pay it back because he had helped them a lot.

Shi also accepted 30,000 yuan from Dai Meiman of Shanghai Tianyi Wedding Service Development Co Ltd in 2004, the court heard.

Shi then asked the notary office to provide preferential services to Dai.
