Shen Deyong, a former member of the standing committee of China's top political advisory body, has been charged with accepting bribes, the country's top procuratorate said on Tuesday.

Shen, former head of the Committee on Social and Legal Affairs of the 13th National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, was placed under investigation for alleged severe violations of disciplines and laws in March.

The National Commission of Supervision has completed its investigation, and the Ningbo People's Procuratorate in Zhejiang province recently filed the charges with a local court, the Supreme People's Procuratorate said in a statement.

Shen, 68, is a native of Jiangxi province. Before joining the CPPCC's National Committee in 2018, he held various positions. He notably served as executive vice-president of the Supreme People's Court, the country's top court, for a number of years.

He also served as vice-president of the Jiangxi Provincial High People's Court and was a member of the Standing Committee of the Communist Party of China Central Commission for Discipline Inspection.

The procuratorate accused Shen of taking advantage of his official positions to seek gains for others and accepting huge bribes in return, according to the statement.

He was expelled from the CPC and dismissed from public office in September.
