BEIJING - Qin Yuhai, former deputy director of the Henan Provincial People's Congress Standing Committee, has been prosecuted for allegedly accepting bribes, the Supreme People's Procuratorate (SPP) said Monday.

The SPP designated Zibo Municipal People's Procuratorate in Shandong province to begin prosecution at Zibo Intermediate People's Court.

Prosecutors informed Qin of his litigation rights during the review and prosecution stage and questioned the defendant in addition to listening to his lawyer's opinions, said a statement from the SPP.

According to the indictment, Qin sought benefits and illegally accepted a huge amount of property from others while serving as Party chief of Jiaozuo city in Henan, vice governor of Henan, head of the provincial public security department, and deputy director of the Henan Provincial People's Congress Standing Committee.

Qin was placed under investigation by the Party's anti-graft watchdog and then dismissed from his post for suspected "serious discipline and law violations" by the Organization Department of the Communist Party of China Central Committee in September 2014.
