The government announced that Lai Xiaomin, 58, who held the position of chairman of China Huarong Asset Management Corporation, had been executed by a court in the eastern city of Tianjin.

The Tianjin Second Intermediate People’s Court ruled in January that the ruling was justified because Lai accepted “particularly large” bribes that exceeded 600 million yuan (93 million dollars) in one case.

The former official sought or raised 1.8 billion yuan ($ 260 million) in a decade in exchange for abusing his position to make investments, offer construction contracts, assist with promotions and perform other services.
