facebook sharing buttonChina’s former justice minister faces life in prison after a court handed him a suspended death sentence on Thursday for taking bribes and “bending the law”.

Fu Zhenghua’s death sentence will be commuted to life imprisonment after a two-year reprieve, the Intermediate People’s Court in the city of Changchun said in a statement.

The high-profile sentencing — part of a sweeping anti-graft campaign — comes just three weeks before a key political meeting where President Xi Jinping is expected to secure an unprecedented third term.
