Political advisor prosecuted for graft
(07-29 11:21)

A senior political advisor from south China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region was prosecuted for taking bribes, the Supreme People's Procuratorate confirmed Tuesday.
The People's Procuratorate of Yanbian Korean Autonomous Prefecture in Jilin Province has filed the lawsuit against Li Daqiu, former vice chairman of the Guangxi Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, to the intermediate people's court of Yanbian.
According to the prosecution, Li sought benefits for others and illegally accepted a large sum in bribes from others during his tenure as the Communist Party chief of Hezhou City in Guangxi and as vice chairman of the region's political advisory body.
Li was expelled from the Communist Party of China (CPC) and public office for discipline violations on Sept. 4, 2013.
According to a statement issued by the CPC disciplinary watchdog in July 2013, Li took advantage of his posts to seek benefits for others and accepted a large sum of money and property by himself or through his relatives. --Xinhua
