A former rising political star pleaded guilty Thursday to taking tens of millions of yuan in bribes over a 15-year period, according to Chinese state media People’s Daily.
Facing court in northern China, former Chongqing Party Secretary Sun Zhengcai admitted to accepting more than 170 million yuan ($27 million) between 2002 and 2017, in both property and cash, when he held various posts across China.
A former member of China’s powerful Politburo, Sun was considered a future leader in China.
According to a statement issued Thursday by the First Intermediate People’s Court of Tianjin Municipality, Sun said he deserved his punishment and had "no objections to the charges."
A verdict will be announced at a later date, the statement said.
Sun is the second Chongqing party secretary to be removed as part of a corruption investigation in the past decade. Chongqing, one of China’s largest cities, is situated deep in the country’s economic heartland and far from the political center of Beijing.
Sun was put in charge of Chongqing in 2012 after former party Secretary Bo Xilai was jailed for life for corruption.
Both Sun and Bo have been caught up in the Chinese President’s signature anti-corruption campaign, which he began shortly after taking office in 2012 with the promise it would target both powerful and lowly officials -- or "tigers and flies."
