Former provincial political advisor prosecuted for taking bribes

Li Chongxi, former top political advisor in southwest China's Sichuan Province, has been prosecuted for taking bribes, the Supreme People's Procuratorate (SPP) announced Friday.

The people's procuratorate of Nanchang city in east China's Jiangxi Province filed the charges with the city's intermediate people's court after prosecutors completed its investigation, according to an SPP statement.

Prosecutors believe Li, former chairman of Sichuan provincial committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, took advantage of his various posts to seek profit for others and illegally accepted a huge amount of funds and property. Li should be charged with the crime of taking bribes.

Prosecutors announced investigation into Li's case in September 2014, when Li was removed from his post and was expelled from the Communist Party of China.
