Chinese Hacker Sentenced to Death for EmbezzlementA 36-year old hacker was sentenced to death in Hangzhou recently by the Ningbo Intermediate Court in east China's Zhejiang Province for embezzling over one million yuan (US$120,000) of public money from a bank account.
A senior official said that this is the most severe punishment that a Chinese judicial organization has given to a hacker.
As an accountant in Ningbo branch of the Bank of Communications of China, Fang Yong embezzled about 1.66 million yuan (about US$200, 000) of public money, by counterfeiting bank paper, and taking money from people's account from May to August 1990.
He fled to Canada in 1990 and was expelled by the Canadian government last year and sent back to China for trial.
