BEIJING -- Zhou Jiankun, former vice-chairman of the Guizhou Provincial Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, is being prosecuted for accepting bribes, according to a statement from the Supreme People's Procuratorate on Thursday.

Zhou's case has been filed by prosecutors of Southwest China's Chongqing municipality to the city's intermediate people's court, following the conclusion of a National Commission of Supervision probe.

He is accused of taking advantage of his various former positions in Guizhou to seek profits for others, the statement said, noting that he accepted a particularly large amount of money and valuables in return.

The prosecutors informed the defendant of his litigation rights, questioned him, and listened to the opinions of the defense counsel.
