JINAN, Aug. 25 (Xinhua) -- The Jinan Intermediate People's Court announced that the trial of bribery, embezzlement and abuse of power involving Bo Xilai adjourned on Sunday morning and will resume on Monday.
Bo, 64, is former secretary of the Chongqing Municipal Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC) and a former member of the CPC Central Committee Political Bureau.
At Sunday morning's hearing that ended at 10:55 a.m., the prosecution and defense cross-examined the testimony that Wang Lijun, former vice mayor and police chief of Chongqing Municipality, gave at the court on Saturday afternoon on the charge of power abuse against Bo.
Prosecutors also presented more evidence on the charge of power abuse against Bo.
In the previous three days of trial, prosecutors accused Bo of accepting bribes from businessmen Tang Xiaolin, general manager of Dalian International Development Co. Ltd, and Xu Ming, chairman of Dalian Shide Group Co. Ltd., embezzling 5 million yuan from a government project and abusing his power when it was reported that his wife Bogu Kailai was suspected of intentional homicide, and when his subordinate Wang Lijun defected.
On Saturday, Wang Zhenggang, then director of the Dalian municipal bureau of urban and rural planning and land, also testified in court on the charge of embezzlement against Bo.
