Beijing: A Chinese court today upheld the sentence of a former banker, mocked by Chinese netizens as "Sister House", for faking IDs.

Gong Aiai, 49, had been sentenced to three years in jail for forging and trading official documents at her first trial in northwest China's Shaanxi Province on September 29.

The Intermediate People's Court in Yulin City today upheld the verdict, state-run Xinhua news agency reported.

The court heard that the former deputy head of the Shenmu County Rural Commercial Bank in Yulin City illegally purchased Beijing hukou (residency) for her daughter and herself at a cost of 300,000 yuan (USD 48,859) in 2005, to allow her to buy houses in the capital.

According to the police, Gong had four hukou IDs and possessed 44 Beijing properties with total floor space of 10,543 square meters. The total property value amounted to 395 million yuan.
