Four Chinese judges have been charged with taking bribes to fix cases, a news report said Friday, following a warning by President Hu Jintao that corruption is threatening China's well-being. The cases in the eastern province of Anhui come amid a widening, high-profile corruption scandal in Shanghai, but there was no indication the cases are related. A senior prosecutor said this week that more than 17,500 officials have been punished this year for corruption. "We see the fight against corruption as a top priority, a pressing task that has great influence on the overall development of the country," state media quoted President Hu Jintao as saying at an anti-corruption conference this week.
