Zhou Yongkang was charged with bribery, abuse of power and intentional disclosure of state secrets, the Supreme People’s Procuratorate (SPP) said on Friday of April 3.

The indictment was brought in on Friday by the Tianjin Municipal People’s Procuratorate No. 1 branch to the Tianjin Municipal No. 1 Intermediate People’s Court.

Zhou, 73, served as deputy general manager of China National Petroleum Corporation, secretary of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Sichuan Provincial Committee, and member of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee while minister of public security and state councilor.

He also served as member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee and secretary of the Commission for Political and Legal Affairs of the CPC Central Committee.

Zhou took the advantage of his posts to offer interests to others and illegally accepted a huge amount of money and property, according to the indictment.

Zhou’s abuse of power resulted in grave losses of public property and interests of the country and the people. The social impact was “bad” and his act was “particularly serious,” according to the indictment.

He also intentionally disclosed state secrets and his act was “particularly serious,” according to the indictment.

Prosecutors informed the defendant Zhou Yongkang of his litigation rights, interrogated him and heard opinions of his lawyers, according to the SPP’s statement.

The Tianjin procuratorate brought in the prosecution according to the law after the SPP completed its investigation into Zhou’s case, the statement said.

    Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a
    blog post or vice-versa? My site addresses a lot of the same topics as yours and I
    believe we could greatly benefit from each other. If you
    might be interested feel free to send me an email.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Superb blog by the way!

  6. Its such as you read my thoughts! You appear to know so much approximately this, like you wrote the
    ebook in it or something. I think that you can do with a few p.c.
    to pressure the message home a little bit, however instead of that, that is wonderful blog.
    A great read. I’ll certainly be back.

    had spent for this info! Thanks!

  9. First off I want to say great blog! I had a quick question which
    I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to find
    out how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing.
    I’ve had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting my
    thoughts out there. I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like
    the first 10 to 15 minutes are lost simply just trying to
    figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints?
    Kudos!

  11. Many provocative activities have taken place on this sport (such as attainable
    pedophilia, strip clubs and sex acts among
    different things), and the creator of the sport does stupid issues to cease it.

  12. Yes! Finally something about ig.

  14. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my
    own blog and was wondering what all is needed to get setup?

    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100% positive.
    Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Kudos
