No Verdict for Chen Liangyu in Social Security Fund Hearing

From China Daily:

The first hearing of the city’s former Party secretary Chen Liangyu, who was axed for corruption two years ago, has concluded in Tianjin, the media reported Thursday.

At the hearing, 62-year-old Chen, the highest Party official ousted in the past decade, said he was “partially responsible” for the misuse of social security funds, the Beijing Evening News said.

He did not, however, plead guilty during the hearing, which was held on Tuesday and Wednesday at the Tianjin No 2 Intermediate People’s Court. A verdict has yet to be reached.
