Chongqing crime boss jailed

A CRIME boss was jailed for 20 years by an intermediate court in Chongqing city today, as part of a citywide crackdown on criminal gangs.

Li Yi, nicknamed Mickey Mouse, was sentenced to 20 years in prison and fined 1.01 million yuan (US$147,900) today by Chongqing No.2 Intermediate People's Court for heading a gang that ran transport and businesses in Linjiang Town.

Li was also found guilty of arson, robbery, extortion, intentional injury, and illegal possession of guns, according to China News Service.

Li's 25 gang members were also sentenced to up to 17 years in prison. Two of the 25 were given probation as they were exempted from the charge of being involved in a mafia-like gang.

Chongqing No.3 Intermediate People's Court also today sustained the original sentence of 20 years' imprisonment and 50,000 yuan fine on Zhou Xiaobo, another crime boss in the city's Fuling County.
