HOHHOT, Oct. 31 (Xinhua) -- A former senior Communist Party of China (CPC) official in north China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region went on trial on Monday over corruption charges, a local court said.

Bai Zhiming, former deputy secretary-general of the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Regional Committee of the CPC, was charged with accepting 10.5 million yuan (1.7 million U.S. dollars) in bribes between 2001 and 2008, according to a statement released by the Intermediate People's Court in the city of Chifeng.

The 57-year-old was also accused of possessing public assets worth 5 million yuan during the seven-year period, during which he also held several other government posts.

He gained 7.6 million yuan in illegal earnings and had another 7.4 million yuan for which a source could not be identified, prosecutors said in the statement.

Police also seized a hunting gun and 177 bullets after arresting him in November last year, it said.
