Former China Supreme Court Judge Handed 14-Year Prison Sentence for Corruption
Wang Linqing, a former assistant judge at China’s top court, has been sentenced to 14 years in prison for taking bribes and illegally obtaining state secrets, three years after a high-profile scandal involving the loss of the court documents put him in the spotlight.
Wang, 47, was also fined 1 million yuan ($150,000) for the offenses, the Beijing No.2 Intermediate People’s Court said Saturday. His illegal gains will be turned over to the state treasury, the court said in a statement (link in Chinese).
