Alleged Cyanide Procurer in ‘Heywood Murder’ Imprisoned Since 2014
A city district official who says he helped the wife of disgraced political heavyweight Bo Xilai buy cyanide used to murder a British citizen got a 15-year prison sentence, a recently released court document shows.
But the 2014 sentence was linked to corruption charges, and the official was never charged with being an accomplice in the high-profile killing in the West China municipality of Chongqing, according to a document released on Nov. 8 via China Judgments Online, an archive affiliated with China’s Supreme People’s Court.
