Cash-hoard­ing of­fi­cial jailed for graft

The Myanmar Times - - World -

A former Chi­nese of­fi­cial who stock­piled so many mil­lions at his home that money-count­ing ma­chines re­port­edly broke when au­thor­i­ties tried to count the hoard has been given a heavy prison sen­tence for cor­rup­tion. Wei Pengyuan, former deputy head of the coal depart­ment at China’s Na­tional En­ergy Ad­min­is­tra­tion, was found guilty of ac­cept­ing more than 211.7 mil­lion yuan (US$31.4 mil­lion) in bribes. He was sen­tenced to life in prison.
