China`s former railway minister stands trial
Beijing: China`s former railway minister Liu Zhijun stood trial in a court here Sunday on charges of bribery and abuse of power.
Liu had taken advantage of his position and helped 11 people in promotion and wining project contracts and accepted 64.6 million yuan ($10.53 million) in bribes from them between 1986 to 2011, reports Xinhua.
During his tenure as the railway minister, Liu helped Ding Yuxin and her relatives to win cargo transportation and railway construction contracts.
He also helped Ding in the acquisition of shares in a company and with enterprise financing, by breaking regulations and playing favouritism, which allowed Ding Yuxin and her family to reap huge profits.
