A former Nanshan District official stood trial Monday on nine counts of charges including abusing his power and taking bribes totaling 6 million yuan (US$980,000).

Han Jiang, deputy director of the Standing Committee of the Nanshan District People’s Congress, pleaded guilty at Shenzhen Intermediate People’s Court but denied using his position to obtain illegal profits for others. Han said he has returned all of the money and goods he received in bribes.

Prosecutors charged Jiang with taking bribes related to Universiade facelift projects in 2011 and other urban renovation projects, in exchange for helping people get contracts.

Prosecutors said Han, then deputy office director of Nanshan’s Party committee, took bribes of 750,000 yuan from developers of the Changxing Square renovation project in exchange for helping them resolve land requisition and relocation disputes.

During the Universiade period, Han, then head of Shekou Subdistrict Office, took bribes of 300,000 yuan for offering an afforestation project to contractors, prosecutors said. He also is accused of taking bribes totaling 810,000 yuan between 2003 and 2011 in exchange for offering parking maintenance, property cleaning and renovation contracts to Shenzhen Kangmingsi Science and Technology Co. A Kangmingsi manager surnamed Wu also gave Han 630,000 yuan so Han could buy an Audi Q5, prosecutors said.

Han also is accused of taking bribes totaling HK$200,000 (US$25,799) between 2006 and 2010, in exchange for village renovation projects in Shekou.

Han bought two apartments and a business stall for 970,000 yuan in 2005 and 2006, but developer Shekou Wanxia Industrial Co. didn’t process the payment and three properties were registered under the name of Han’s sister. The company’s manager, surnamed Mo, also gave Han 2 million yuan to purchase a membership at Mission Hills Golf Club, prosecutors said.

Han also inappropriately helped a man surnamed Liang get a pork wholesale business in 1998 in exchange for half of the profits, prosecutors said, adding that Liang paid Han 400,000 yuan in eight installments over two years.

Han also took cash gifts totaling 158,000 yuan from the chairman of Nangang Industrial Shareholding Co., surnamed Wu, between 1999 and 2011, prosecutors said.

Han, born in 1960, was detained in January 2012 and formally arrested in January 2013 with the approval of Guangdong Provincial People’s Procuratorate. (Han Ximin)
