China executes two politicians for taking bribe



‎Two former vice-mayors were executed on Monday for corruption by the Chinese government. ‎

‎In recent times Chinese authorities have gone tough on corruption – a problem which Communisty Party General Secretary Hu Jintao has described as one of the four dangers facing the party.

The two former officials from the cities of Hangzhou and Suzhou took more than 250 million yuan (HK$321.4 million) between them in bribes from real estate developers in exchange for helping them acquire land and related preferential policies, the Supreme People’s Court said.

The criminals were both government leaders in charge of urban construction work, and their major crimes were related to land use and construction.’‎
