A court on Tuesday sentenced a former Deputy to the National People’s Congress to life in prison for organised prostitution.
Liang Yaohui was charged before a court in south China’s Dongguan with “collusive tendering and bribery.”
According to the court, Liang, who owned a five-star hotel, had been offering prostitution services since 2004 and illegally gained nearly $6m as of 2013.
Liang was also accused of colluding in entering bids which inflicted serious losses on national assets, and bribing a deputy manager of local power company for lower noncommercial electricity charges.
Liang has appealed.
