The Jinan Intermediate People’s Court, in Shandong province, said on Wednesday it would deliver the verdict in the Bo Xilai case on the morning of September 22, the official Xinhua news agency reported. At Mr. Bo’s five-day trial, which closed on August 26, prosecutors demanded a heavy sentence for the former Commerce Minister and Party chief in the southwestern municipality of Chongqing. He stands accused of receiving bribes amounting to 28 million Yuan (around Rs. 28 crore) and covering up the murder of British business associate Neil Heywood, who was poisoned by Mr. Bo’s wife, Gu Kailai. Mr. Bo denied the charges. — Ananth Krishnan
