Shi Wenqing, former vice chairman of the Standing Committee of the Jiangxi Provincial People's Congress, was prosecuted for taking bribes and illegally possessing guns, the Supreme People's Procuratorate said on Thursday.

The Ningbo People's Procuratorate in Zhejiang province accused him of using his positions, which included vice mayor of Harbin in Heilongjiang province and Party chief of Ganzhou in Jiangxi, to benefit others and illegally accepted bribes in return, the SPP said in a statement.

The volume of bribes was especially huge, and he should be charged with criminal bribery, the statement read.

Criminal responsibility shall be investigated for his illegal possession of guns. He committed several crimes and should receive appropriate punishment according to law, the SPP said.

Shi, 66, was expelled from the Party in March for discipline violation.
