Yang Keqin, former chief procurator of Jilin Provincial People’s Procuratorate, has been indicted on charge of taking bribes, the Supreme People’s Procuratorate (SPP) said Monday.
Yang was accused of taking advantage of his former positions to seek profits for others and accepting vast sums of money and gifts in return, the SPP said in a statement.
Yang’s case was handed over to the Shijiazhuang Municipal People’s Procuratorate in north China’s Hebei Province for review and prosecution upon the designation of the SPP after the National Supervisory Commission concluded the investigation, it said.
Yang will stand trial in the Shijiazhuang Municipal Intermediate People’s Court, it added.
The SPP said the prosecutors had informed the defendant of his litigation rights, interrogated him and listened to the defense counsel’s opinions.
