Football bribe: 2 ex-soccer chiefs get 10-1/2 years sentence PDF Print E-mail
BEIJING, June 13 (APP): Two former Chinese soccer chiefs were sentenced on Wednesday to more than a decade in jail for bribery. Nan Yong, the ex-director of the Chinese Football Administrative Center, was handed a 10-and-a-half-year term by a court in the northeast city of Tieling for taking bribes worth more than 1.48 million yuan (about 235,000 U.S. dollars) between 1999 and 2009. According to Xinhua news Agency, Nan, who was credited with leading China into their only World Cup finals in 2002, was also fined 200,000 yuan (about 31,340 U.S. dollars) with his illegal gains confiscated.

At a different court in Dandong city, Nan’s predecessor Xie Yalong  was sentenced to 10 and ½ years in prison for accepting bribes totaling 1.36 million yuan (about 214,000 U.S. dollars), reports Xinhua news.
Xie, who claimed during April’s court session that he had been tortured into confession, which was later denied by Liaoning police, was also fined 200,000 yuan (31,340 U.S. dollars).
Nan and Xie told the courts they need to consult with their respective attorneys to decide whether to appeal the verdicts.
They were among the 11 people who are receiving punishments Wednesday for their parts in the match-fixing and gambling scandal exposed two years ago.
Four former Chinese international players - Shen Si, Qi Hong, Jiang Jin and Li Ming, charged with taking a total of 8 million yuan (about 1.27 million U.S. dollars) to fix a domestic league game, also received jail sentence.
