Yu Luming, former vice chairman of Beijing's political consultative body, was sentenced to 11 years in prison and fined one million yuan ($136,000) for the crime of accepting bribes on Tuesday, according to verdict announced by the Intermediate People's Court of Zhangjiakou, Hebei province.

The court said Yu accepted bribes totaling 10.5 million yuan.

Additionally, the court ruled that the illegal gains and interest obtained through the bribery activities of Yu should be confiscated and turned over to the national treasury. If the confiscated amount falls short, further measures will be carried out.

The court found that Yu was involved in the illegal handling of land use rights and favorable treatment in contracting hospital projects during his tenure at the health authority in Beijing's Daxing district, the district government and the Beijing commission of health and family planning between 2001 to 2019, China Media Group reported.

Yu confessed his guilt during the previous hearing.
