A court in Beijing has sentenced one of China’s top officials to death for corruption.
He’s Cheng Kejie, who until recently was a vice-chairman of the Standing Committee of the Chinese parliament, the National People’s Congress.
Mr Cheng was accused of accepting almost five-million dollars worth of bribes during his time as the regional leader in the south-western province of Guangxi in the 1990’s.
He is the most senior official to be sentenced to death in the current anti-corruption campaign.
I mean, God forbid, if it was, we’ll be witnessing a political mass genocide! And we really don’t want that, do we now?
