Ex-China Supreme Court Justice Gets Life Sentence

 

On Tuesday, Huang Songyou, 52, who was a judge at the Chinese Supreme Court, was sentenced to life term for he was accused of accepting bribes of 3.9 million yuan from a law firm for favorable rulings on cases.

The former judge also embezzled 1.2 million yuan in government funds. China continues to battle strongly against corruptions. Before that a Communist Party chief, Chen Liangyu, was sentenced to 18 years in prison in 2008 for he was in a scandal.

That was a pension fund scandal. In 2007, deadly fake medicine was approved by the director of food and drug agency in China for which he was sentenced to death.

Caution, if a channel master says that this summary is acceptable then i´m calm for continuing to put up more stories, also thanks for all ratings. As for the story, i´m surprised of despite communist system is in China, they are battling very much against the corruptions, for it i give all my respect to them.

  It´s so hard to say  
 
In a communist system, perhaps the man angered a party official and could not bribe his way out of a harsh life sentence.
