A former Shenzhen district police chief has pleaded guilty to corruption charges. An Huijun , 50, admitted in Shenzhen People's Intermediate Court that she took more than 2 million yuan in bribes during her tenure between 1995 and 2003. But the former Lowu bureau chief claimed to have suffered serious memory loss since her dismissal in October and could not answer questions about corruption allegations. She was accused of taking bribes from subordinates seeking promotions, as well as from businesses bidding for engineering projects and government purchasing contracts, the Shenzhen Special Zone Daily reported. The trial was conducted under heavy police surveillance and only three Shenzhen government-run media were allowed to hear it. The Southern Metropolitan News quoted a legal expert as saying this had damaged the government's credibility. An's lawyer said that while she had taken bribes, the practice was common in Shenzhen. The prosecutor in turn accused the lawyer of presenting false evidence. The judge adjourned the court to an unspecified date for sentencing.
