A former provincial official in eastern China was given a suspended death sentence after being convicted of corruption and bribery, a state news agency has reported. Cai Wenlong committed his crimes between 1998 and 2006, when he served in top posts of several state-owned companies, the official Xinhua News Agency said late Wednesday. He was promoted to deputy head of the Anhui province commerce department in January 2007. Cai, 55, embezzled 17 million yuan ($2.5 million) for personal profit and misappropriated more than 14 million yuan ($2 million), Xinhua said, citing the Intermediate People's Court of Chaohu city. The court was also cited as saying that Cai took 3 million yuan ($440,000) in bribes and lost 300 million in state-owned assets ($44 million) in the stock market.
