The two biggest Chinese politicians to fall in recent years, ex-security chief Zhou Yongkang and former high-flyer Bo Xilai, formed a "clique" together, state media reported Thursday as President Xi Jinping pledges a crackdown on Communist Party factionalism.
The mother of a Briton whose murder led to the downfall of high-flying Chinese politician Bo Xilai has hit out at Beijing for failing to pay compensation over his death, saying it left a "stain" on China`s reputation.
Enforcing an anti-graft drive launched by President Xi Jinping, China punished 1.82 lakh officials for corruption in 2013 amid speculation that son of a retired top ruling Communist Party leader has been detained on graft charges.
A court in eastern China rejected an appeal by ousted senior politician Bo Xilai on Friday and upheld his life sentence on charges of bribery, corruption and abuse of power, the official Xinhua news agency reported.
A Chinese high court will on Friday give its verdict on disgraced Chinese leader Bo Xilai`s appeal against the life sentence given to him last month on charges of bribery, embezzlement and abuse of power.
The USD three million that fallen Communist Party leader Bo Xilai was accused of embezzling was meant to pay for a holiday home in northeastern China`s Dalian city for former Chinese president Jiang Zemin.
In a candid confession, fallen Chinese leader Bo Xilai has told a court that he had been unfaithful to his wife Gu Kailai, who has testified against him in the ongoing trial, but still had "feelings for her".
