Yang Keqin, former chief procurator of Jilin Provincial People's Procuratorate, was sentenced to 13 years in prison and fined 4 million yuan ($620,000) for taking bribes worth 46.36 million yuan after standing trial on Monday in a court in North China's Hebei province.

Yang was found to have taken advantage of his job positions to seek profit for others in business operations, cases handling and personnel promotion, and he illegally accepted bribes in return from 2011 to 2019, the Shijiazhuang Intermediate People's Court said in a verdict.

Between 2011 and 2019, he served as director of the Institute of Politics and Law under the Commission for Political and Legal Affairs of the Communist Party of China Central Committee, deputy head of the office of the Central Leading Group for Judicial Reform, and chief procurator of Jilin Provincial People's Procuratorate.

Yang voluntarily confessed his crime, pleaded guilty and expressed remorse, and since all the bribery money and properties have been recovered, a lighter punishment was given, the court said.

He was expelled from the Party and dismissed from public office over serious violations of Party discipline and laws in 2019.
