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.
