Soccer officials to stand trial next Monday


10:16, December 16, 2011

The long-awaited trial into soccer corruption will finally kick off next week as a line-up of officials will take the stand, the Yangtze Evening Post reports.

Yang Yimin, ex-deputy director of the Chinese Football Administrative Center, and ex-Chinese Football Association (CFA) referee heads Zhang Jianqiang will reportedly face trial on Monday in the Intermediate People's Court in Tieling city, Northeast China's Liaoning province, along with scores of leading club officials, former players, coaches and referees.

The date for a court hearing against former CFA vice-president Nan Yong, who was arrested in March 2010, and Nan's predecessor Xie Yalong, has still not been set.

The two senior football chiefs will stand trial with former national team manager Wei Shaohui in the Intermediate People's Court of Dandong, a border city in Liaoning, according to the Nanjing-based newspaper.
