Beijing: Lai Changxing, the alleged kingpin
of China`s notorious smuggling ring, went on trial on Friday for
smuggling and bribery at the Intermediate People`s Court of
Xiamen.

Before today`s trial, the intermediate court sent the
indictment to Lai, also notifying his lawyer to meet with Lai
and get access to all files relating to the case.

According to a court statement, all the litigation rights
of Lai and his lawyer have been fully safeguarded.

Representatives for the prosecution and defense
participated in the trial.

Many citizens, officials and lawmakers, as well as some
of Lai`s family and friends, also attended the proceedings.

Lai was repatriated from Canada last year in June after
being on the run for 12 years. He is accused of being the
mastermind of a multi-billion-dollar smuggling operation in
China in the 1990s.
