Anhui official’s jade graft exposed
(01-07 18:15)

Investigators in China say a former deputy governor took hundreds of thousands of dollars in bribes, much of it in carved jade, as part of a trend in recent years involving the use of art and precious stones instead of money to conceal corruption.
Ni Fake, deputy governor of the eastern province of Anhui until his fall last June, traded political favors for premium jade, they said in a report.
The report said Ni is a connoisseur of jade. –AP
