Sui Fengfu, former deputy head of the Heilongjiang Provincial People's Congress Standing Committee, has been sentenced to 11 years in prison for taking bribes, according to Shenyang City Intermediate People's Court on Monday.

Sui was found guilty of taking advantage of his positions between 2003 and 2014 in various areas, including selection and promotion of several individuals.

He accepted gifts and money totalling over 10.4 million yuan (1.6 million US dollars).

The court in northeast China's Liaoning Province showed leniency as Sui admitted his crimes, gave account of cases that were not found by investigators and voluntarily returned his profits.
