A former Shenzhen district police chief will go on trial by the end of this month, accused of taking more than 2 million yuan in bribes, Xinhua reported yesterday. However, 50-year-old An Huijun will not have to answer to accusations that she sexually harassed young male subordinates during business trips. Earlier reports had alleged that those willing to have sex with her were rewarded with quick promotions. Xinhua reported that the Shenzhen prosecutors had not mentioned the sexual allegations in their indictment. The news agency quoted an official as saying that such conduct was beyond the scope of their investigation. 'According to the criminal law in China, bribes are only defined as relating to property,' he said. An, a former Public Security Bureau director in Lowu once hailed as a model policewoman, is accused of accepting 1.64 million yuan, $530,000, US$1,000 and two television sets as bribes while working for the bureau from 1995 to 2003, the news agency reported. She allegedly took the bribes from subordinates seeking promotions, as well as from businesses bidding for engineering projects and government purchasing contracts. An's arrest made headlines around the country, partly because of the sexual allegations. Her case did not come to light until August, when three of her subordinates were found to have invested in an illegal residential property which collapsed and killed a mother and son. The three admitted to having bribed An, leading to her dismissal in October. During the probe into An's case, investigators learned that at least two other bureau officials had allegedly taken bribes. They had been detained and were now awaiting trial, Xinhua said.
