Chinese banker Cai Guohua, former president of Hengfeng Bank, was sentenced to death on Friday with a two-year suspension for embezzlement of funds, abuse of power, corruption and for receiving illegal bribes and loans.
The Dongying City Intermediate People’s Court in northeastern Shandong province explained in a statement on Weibo that if Cai doesn’t commit any more crimes, over the next two years, your sentence will be commuted to life imprisonment.
The court added that his political rights were nullified and his assets confiscated. The ruling indicated that Cai took advantage of his position to “illegally occupy bank properties for his own benefit”. According to the official Global Times newspaper, Cai is “One of the most corrupt bankers in history” and received more than 10.3 billion yuan (1,134 million euros).
Based in Shandong, Hengfeng Bank began a restructuring process in 2017, when Chinese regulators launched a campaign to contain financial risks in the banking sector, added Chinese publication Caixin.
Last year, Cai’s predecessor at Hengfeng Bank, Jiang Yunxi, was also sentenced to death with a two-year suspension.
