A former high-level official has been charged with bribery, Beijing prosecutors said on Monday.
Beijing No 1 People’s Procuratorate confirmed that Tian Xueren, former executive deputy governor of Jilin province, had been prosecuted, saying he was suspected of receiving bribes of about 20 million yuan ($3.3 million) over 16 years.
In July 2012, Tian was placed under investigation and he was prosecuted five months later, the authority added.
