GUANGZHOU - A former political advisor of Shenzhen City was sentenced to 14 years behind bars for bribery and holding illegal weapons by a court in south China's Guangdong Province on Friday.

Huang Zhiguang, former vice chairman of the Shenzhen Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, took bribes in exchange for promotions, Guangzhou Intermediate People's Court ruled.

He also helped Zhan, president of a local company, with his business, from 2002 to 2010. In exchange, Zhan gave him valuable gifts, such as jade ornaments and luxurious wood furniture.

Huang illegally possessed seven guns which were seized at his home on April 19, 2011 as part of an investigation into severe discipline violations.

Properties worth 500,000 yuan ($82,350), cash equivalent to the bribes of over 800,000 yuan and the gifts have been confiscated.
