Getting all this bride and still so stingy, didn’t spend any of it? All saved up for counting.
Why so many corrupted Chinese government officials? Maybe it is the system, what attract them to become one the first place is corruption, and the new ones learn from the old ones.
Chinese law makes corrupted officials more daring. Sad!
When it is over 10,000,000 death for sure.
One person dies, his whole family will have happy lives!! It is worth it!! Couple years later, when situation is not tense anymore bail him out, still a millionaire!
Since 1995, till today is 13 years, and we just found out?
I am speechless, this is China’s special official in China’s special system.
Use all that money for paying Beijing airport fees, so we never have to pay them again.
This kind of sentencing will make corrupted officials more daring.
