Former CITIC Group executive director indicted for bribery
Zhao Jingwen, a former executive director of CITIC Group, has been indicted on the charge of taking bribes, the Supreme People's Procuratorate said Friday.
Zhao's case was handed over to the procuratorate of Changsha in central China's Hunan Province for review and prosecution upon the designation of the SPP after the National Supervisory Commission concluded the investigation, it said.
Zhao will stand trial in the Changsha Municipal Intermediate People's Court, it added.
Prosecutors accused Zhao of taking advantage of his former positions to seek benefits for others, accepting vast amounts of money and gifts and illegally possessing public properties.
The prosecutors informed Zhao of his litigation rights, interrogated the defendant and listened to his defense counsel's opinions, the SPP said.
