A Chinese court announced that it will deliver a verdict Sunday against disgraced politician Bo Xilai on charges of bribery, embezzlement and abuse of power in a case set in motion by his wife's murder of a British businessman.
Fallen Chinese politician Bo Xilai assailed his wife and his former right-hand man in four days of testimony ending Sunday, rejecting accusations of corruption and shielding a murderer in a trial that has offered a glimpse into the shady inner workings of China's elite.
Bo Xilai, a former rising star in China's Communist Party, was formally indicted this week on several charges related to bribery, corruption and abuse of power, state media reported Thursday.
Perhaps more than Westerners, the Chinese have a gambling streak.
China's communist leadership expelled Bo Xilai from the ruling party Friday and sought to bury him with charges ranging from corruption to sexual affairs, aiming to sweep away their most damaging scandal in decades while finally scheduling their long-awaited leadership transition for November.
China has nearly mopped up a murder scandal that has roiled the country for months, but the last step — dealing with a fallen political star who was once among the Communist Party's most popular figures — will be the most delicate of all.
The ex-police chief at the center of China's seamy political scandal asked U.S. diplomats for asylum after he covered up a murder for the wife of the Communist Party boss but then grew estranged and feared for his life, the Chinese government said Wednesday.
China opened the trial for an ex-police chief at the center of the country's worst political scandal in decades, unexpectedly staging a closed-door hearing Monday, a day earlier than publicly announced.
A former police chief whose flight to a U.S. Consulate set off China's biggest political scandal in years has been charged with crimes including defection and bribe taking, state media reported Wednesday, indicating the turbulent affair is moving closer to a resolution before a key national leadership transition this fall.
