Former official jailed for life over corruption

JIANG Runli, vice secretary general of Fushun in northeast China's Liaoning Province, was jailed for life for taking bribes and power abuse, local authorities said yesterday.

The verdict was handed down by the Intermediate People's Court in Shenyang, Liaoning's capital, and Jiang has not lodged an appeal.

Jiang, 54, worked as head of planning and land resources for Fushun from 2001 to 2006 before assuming the post as the city government's vice secretary general.

The court heard that during that period, she received money and luxury items like watches, jewelry, bags and fur coats valued at 4.7 million yuan (US$688,432), from more than 80 people.

There were another 2.6 million yuan worth of assets she could not explain.

Jiang helped real estate developers to win project bids and escape penalties.

She caused the government an economic loss of more than 50 million yuan.

Investigations against her were launched in July 2007.
