Official turns in 55 million RMB in “Clean Politics” Money

A public servant in Guizhou, who has accepted over 380 bribes over the last 16 years, has turned in over 55 million RMB to authorities on his own accord, before any case was brought against him. The bribes, which he received from businessman, restaurant owners, property developers and others, included almost 40 million RMB, 90,000 USD, 220,000 HKD, 10,000 GBP and 5000 grams of gold. The man decided to turn in the money after becoming nervous as bribes became more and more frequent, for higher and higher amounts, hoping that turning in the money would dispel others suspicions about him.

    “hoping that turning in the money would dispel others suspicions about him.”

    Should have immolated himself on top of that giant pile of cash. It would have made just as much sense.

    So he hands in half, hoping they don’t come digging for the other piece?

      Half? Probably closer to a tenth.

    Has he mentioned how he intends to rectify the damage that his accepting the bribes has caused to the local economy and other businesses?
