BEIJING, June 23 (Xinhua) -- Liu Tienan, a former deputy chief of China's top economic planning body, has been charged with taking bribes, authorities said Monday.
Langfang City People's Procuratorate in north China's Hebei Province filed the charge against Liu with Langfang Intermediate People's Court.
Liu, a former deputy director of the National Development and Reform Commission, was dismissed from his post in May last year for suspected involvement in "serious disciplinary violations."
According to the indictment issued by the Langfang City People's Procuratorate, Liu sought benefits for others by taking advantage of his position, and accepted "an extremely large amount" of financial incentives.
The procuratorate has told Liu his rights, interrogated him and heard the arguments of his defense.
