Former Bank of China (Hong Kong) chief executive Liu Jinbao has gone on trial charged with corruption, more than two years after he was detained. Also in the dock in the northeastern city of Changchun for the two-day trial, which ended yesterday, were fellow bank executives Zhu Chi, Ding Yansheng and Zhang Debao , Xinhua reported. Liu was charged with embezzling, solely or in collaboration with others, 14.48 million yuan by taking advantage of his various banking posts, the Changchun People's Procuratorate told the city's Intermediate People's Court. Of the amount embezzled, Liu personally gained 7.72 million yuan, prosecutors alleged. He also received bribes amounting to 1.43 million yuan and was unable to account for 14.78 million yuan in personal assets, they said. Zhu and Ding, formerly deputy chief executives of BOCHK, were charged with jointly embezzling 9.27 million yuan, of which each personally gained 2.11 million yuan. Zhang, a former head of BOCHK's general office and a close aide of Liu, was charged with jointly embezzling 9.72 million yuan, of which he personally gained 1.42 million yuan. Zhu and Ding were arrested in August. The Xinhua report said the four were represented by lawyers and had their own submissions at the end of the trial. It did not detail how the four obtained their bribes. The court reserved judgment.
