Chai Wangqun, former head of the publicity department of Yunnan Province in southwest China, was sentenced 12 years in prison on Wednesday after being convicted of taking bribes.

The Intermediate People's Court of Kunming found that from 1992 to 1996, when Chai was serving in the Organization Department of the Communist Party of China (CPC), he accepted 1.26 million yuan (US$17,370) in various currencies, an apartment and two watches in exchange for illegal qualification promotion of a Shenyang-based company.

Chai was head of the Publicity Department of the CPC Provincial Committee of Yunnan Province before he was arrested in August 2002. He was also fined 100,000 yuan (US$12,200).
