Ex Chinese vice mayor sentenced to death for corruption

Zhang Zhongsheng, the former vice mayor of Luliang City in north China’s Shanxi Province, was sentenced to death on Wednesday for taking bribes of more than 1 billion yuan (US$159 million), a court said today, according to Xinhua news agency.

Zhang’s personal assets will be confiscated, according to the Intermediate People’s Court of Linfen City in Shanxi.

He couldn’t name the source of assets valuing 130 million yuan, blatantly ignored laws and was “extremely greedy.” His crimes caused “huge losses to the country and its people,” the court said, according to Xinhua.
