World - Chinese rail official gets death sentence in corruption case

A Beijing court on Wednesday sentenced a former railway official to death for corruption, but promised a reprieve after two years of good behavior, state media reported, in the latest graft case to hit China`s sprawling rail network. Wen Qingliang was sacked as head of the rail bureau in the southwestern city of Kunming in 2011 for `discipline` problems, the usual euphemism for corruption in China. The Beijing court found that Wen took more than 20 million yuan ($3.3 million) in bribes between 2005 and 2011 while working in the northern province of Shanxi `to provide favors to companies bidding on railway projects`, the official Xinhua news agency said. His death sentence will be commuted after two years, Xinhua added, which generally means that after two years of good behavior he will end up with a life sentence.
