Former vice mayor of Shanghai and director of the Shanghai Public Security Bureau Gong Dao'an stood trial for bribery of allegedly 73.43 million yuan ($11.4 million) at the Tangshan City Intermediate People's Court in Hebei province on Thursday.

Between the latter half of 1999 and July 2020, Gong was accused of taking advantage of his various former positions and status while working in Hubei province and Shanghai to seek profits for relevant institutions and individuals in the areas of business operation, construction projects, case handling, and the appointment and promotion of officials.

Gong, born in 1964, was accused of illegally accepting that huge sum of money in return, according to the Tangshan City People's Procuratorate.

Before he took office in Shanghai in June 2017, his job positions in Hubei included deputy director of the Jingzhou public security bureau, head of major case investigations at the criminal investigation corps of the Hubei Public Security Department, director of the Xianning public security bureau , and director of the Ministry of Public Security's technical investigation bureau.

The court said Gong pleaded guilty and regretted his misconduct during his final statement at the court hearing.

The court will announce the verdict later.
