Corruption trial to be conducted against the former China Senior Judge
On an announcement made by the Prosecutors in China on Tuesday, an investigation shall be conducted against the former China Supreme Court justice Xi Xiaoming on corruption charges. The former vice president of the Supreme People’s Court had been fired already from all of the public positions he held and has had his membership in the ruling Communist Party revoked. The Central Commission for Discipline Inspection has accused Xiaoming of several crimes, including illegally accepting public funds and leaking trial information. The investigation into the former justice began in July for “serious violations of discipline and laws,” a phrase commonly used for corruption in China.
