State-run China Central Television says hearings in a Tianjin court revealed that Sun and his associates accepted cash and goods worth about 170-million yuan, or about 27 million dollars, in exchange for favors and abusing his authority.
Sun had been accused of taking advantage of his position to seek profits for others and illegally accepting money and property during several positions held by him including as Minister for Agriculture, according to previous court statements.
A former top Chinese Communist Party official, who was accused of plotting a coup against President Xi Jinping a year ago, was today sentenced to life imprisonment for taking Dollars 26.7 million in bribes.
Sun is the latest former senior official taken down in President Xi Jinping's ongoing war on corruption.
Sun Zhengcai, a former Politburo member and party chief of Chongqing Municipal Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC), was once tipped for a top leadership post. A probe led to his abrupt fall ahead of the party's National Congress a year ago.
After the guilty verdict was read out at the First Intermediate People's Court of Tianjin on Tuesday morning, the once up-and-coming political star said that he had confessed to his crimes, regretted his criminal wrongdoings and would not be pursuing an appeal. Sun, 54, was abruptly removed in July from his post as party chief of Chongqing, one of China's most important cities.
During last year's National Congress, Xi vowed to continue his anti-corruption campaign, claiming "he fight against corruption has formed an overwhelming posture and strengthened in development". Despite the fact that the campaign has been effective in prosecuting officials, some critics perceived this major ant-corruption crackdown as the president's way of eliminating his political rivals.
In March, China's parliament scrapped presidential term limits, paving the way for President Xi Jinping to rule indefinitely over the world's most populous country.
