Court Investigation on Bo's Case Completed, Trial to Go on Monday

The trial of Bo Xilai, who was charged with bribery, embezzlement and abuse of power, entered the fifth day at the Jinan Intermediate People's Court on Monday.

The whole court investigation phase of this case was completed on Sunday morning after three and half days of trial.

Bo, 64, is former secretary of the Chongqing Municipal Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC) and a former member of the CPC Central Committee Political Bureau.

At Sunday morning's hearing, the prosecution and defense cross-examined the testimony that Wang Lijun, former vice mayor and police chief of Chongqing Municipality, gave at the court on Saturday afternoon on the charge of power abuse against Bo. Prosecutors also presented more evidence.

In the previous days of trial, prosecutors also accused Bo of accepting bribes from businessmen Tang Xiaolin, general manager of Dalian International Development Co. Ltd, and Xu Ming, chairman of Dalian Shide Group Co. Ltd. and embezzling 5 million yuan from a government project.
