Rio Tinto executive Stern Hu ‘will plead guilty’ to accepting bribe in China


 

AUSTRALIAN Rio Tinto executive Stern Hu will plead guilty to bribery charges in China, but contest the amount of bribes he is alleged to have accepted, the lawyer for another defendant in the same Shanghai trial said today.

Chinese prosecutors have charged Australian national Stern Hu for accepting over CNY6 million and Chinese national Liu Caikui for accepting over CNY3 million in bribes, Tao Wuping, the attorney for Liu, told Dow Jones Newswires in a telephone interview.

The charges carry a jail term of more than five years, Tao said.
