China sentence senior lawmaker to death for corruption | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper


While Nigerians continue to debate the crackdown on corrupt judges by the Department of State Service, China today demonstrated how it deals with corruption, after the Asian powerhouse sentenced a 70-year-old former senior legislator to death for taking ‘a huge amount of bribes’ and holding excessive assets with unidentified sources, a charge similar to the allegations of the DSS against the arrested judicial officers.

 The legislator, identified as Bai Enpei becomes the latest official to be punished for graft under a campaign launched by President Xi Jingping. Enpei was a former senior lawmaker with China’s legislature, the National People’s Congress.

 He had also served as the head of the provincial committees of the ruling Communist Party of China in Qinghai and Yunnan province, respectively.

 As part of his punishment, he has been deprived of political rights for life and had all his personal property confiscated.

Enpei has been sentenced to death with a two-year reprieve, state-run Xinhua news agency reported. Investigation of Enpei for graft began in August 2014.

 By January 2015, he was expelled from the Communist Party of China by the CPC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI). The CCDI investigation found that Bai took advantage of his post to seek profits for others and accepted “a huge amount in bribes.”

 Thousands of officials at different levels have been punished in the three year long anti-corruption campaign initiated by President Xi.

How do you think corrupt legislators, judges in Nigeria should be treated?
