DALIAN -- Hao Chunrong, former vice governor of Northeast China's Liaoning province, stood trial for accepting bribes on Thursday.

The case was heard by the Intermediate People's Court of Dalian in Liaoning.

Hao was accused of taking advantage of her official positions between 1999 and 2021, and providing others with undue assistance in land allocation, project contracting, attaining approval, job promotions and transfers.
