Rio Tinto exec jailed for 10 years

A Shanghai court today sentenced a Chinese-Australian executive of Rio Tinto to seven years in prison on charges of accepting bribes and five years on charges of stealing commercial secrets.

The Shanghai Intermediate People's Court said the Australian executive Stern Hu, who headed Rio Tinto's iron ore operations in China, will serve 10 years.

Hu had pleaded guilty to accepting bribes but contested the amount of 6.46 million yuan (US$946,300) alleged by prosecutors.

Three other Chinese Rio executives were also sentenced to between seven and 14 years in prison on bribery and secrets charges.
