Disgraced Politburo member Bo Xilai has been formally charged with bribery, corruption and abuse of power, Bloomberg reported, citing a state media report on Thursday. The indictment was brought by the Jinan prosecutor’s office, the state-run Xinhua News Agency said, signaling the eastern Chinese city will host the trial. Under Chinese law, a court will probably deliver a judgment within a month. “Defendant Bo Xilai used his official state position to seek benefits, illegally accepted an extremely huge amount of property from others, embezzled a huge amount of public money and abused his power, resulting in huge losses to the nation and the people,” Xinhua reported.
