BEIJING - Details of 12 cases involving violations by police officers, judges and prosecutors were released Wednesday by the Commission for Political and Legal Affairs of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee.

In the northwestern province of Gansu, Guo Zhongde, a former deputy chief prosecutor in Longnan City, took bribes of 738,000 yuan (about 120,000 U.S. dollars), accepted an illegal gift of an off-road vehicle and had improper earnings of 7.66 million yuan from companies he operated with others. Already dismissed from his post, Guo was sentenced to 11 years in prison.

Two police officers in the central province of Hubei were accused of taking bribes of 100,000 yuan to allow illegal casinos in their jurisdiction. The two have been dismissed from the police force, and their case transferred to the judiciary.

The commission will intensify investigation of similar cases, no matter who is involved, and better manage law enforcers.

In February, the commission publicized 10 other typical cases involving law enforcers.
