Bo Xilai has been found guilty of accepting bribes worth 20.44 million yuan (about 3.3 million US dollars), according to the verdict announced Sunday by the Jinan Intermediate People's Court.

The court also decided that there was insufficient evidence supporting that he accepted 1.34 million yuan worth of air ticket fees as bribes.

Bo's wife and son accepted air ticket fees from businessman Xu Ming, according to the indictment during the first trial in August.
