Beijing – The former head of Beijing airport’s management company was executed on Friday following his conviction on corruption charges, state media reported, making him the latest figure brought down in China’s battle against widespread graft.
An intermediate court found 60-year-old Li Peiying guilty in February of accepting almost $4m in bribes and embezzling about $12m in public money since 1995, the Xinhua News Agency said.
Peiying would have been able to hide the money a little more effectively, but there wasn’t a freezer at the airport.
I’m no fan of China’s politics, but the Chi-com leadership does know how to deal with crooks in their own ranks, so credit where credit is due.
Meanwhile, back in the United States, Chris Dodd, who is as crooked as the day is long, was lightly slapped on the wrist before being allowed to return to his important work of screwing American taxpayers.
