Judge jailed for power abuse
    2018-10-12  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

A FORMER judge with Longgang District People’s Court was recently sentenced to 15 months in jail for abusing his power during his tenure, the Nanfang Daily reported Thursday.

However, the defendant, surnamed Shi, maintains his innocence. A second trial on the case is ongoing.

The first trial was heard at Nanhai People’s Court in Foshan City. According to the verdict, Shi had abused his power while judging an economic dispute between two companies over their shareholdings of a joint company back in 2011.

Shi’s case had been labeled as one of the 10 classic economic cases in Guangdong Province, according to the provincial procuratorate.

The procuratorate said that Shi had deliberately violated judicial procedures when judging the economic dispute case, causing the defending company to lose its 40-percent shareholding and nearly 75.44 million yuan (US$10.89 million).

The economic dispute dated back to 2010, when a company named Shenzhen Weifa had a conflict with another company known as Zhejiang Shangdu after setting up a joint company. Shenzhen Weifa was a 60-percent shareholder in the joint company, while Zhejiang Shangdu held the remaining 40 percent.

According to the verdict issued by Nanhai People’s Court, several judicial officials from Longgang District at the time asked Shi to “take care of” Shenzhen Weifa, which was owned by a person surnamed Peng.

In fact, Shi had a conflict of interest in the case because of his personal connection with Peng and had once asked the businessman to find a job for his sister-in-law. Peng had also allegedly bribed Shi with cigarettes, alcohol and tea gifts.

When Shenzhen Weifa got into the economic dispute with its former partner, Peng asked Shi to take his side and protect his interests.

On June 30, 2010, Shi ordered to confiscate Zhejiang Shangdu’s capital and shareholdings. With an inappropriate judiciary procedure, Shi ruled against the defending company having a chance to purchase 40 percent of shares during the auction and colluded with the evaluators to undervalue the company’s capital, which led to the company’s huge economic losses.

In the same year, Peng purchased most of the shares in the joint company.

Shi insisted that he had just overlooked certain judiciary procedures when making the ruling. (Zhang Qian)
