Criminal Handed Over From Canada Given Life SentenceFang Yong, a former employee of the Ningbo Branch of the Bank of Communications, who committed grafting through computers and then stealthily left China, was recently sentenced to life imprisonment and civil death in the final ruling by the Supreme People's Court of Zhejiang Province.
According to the report of Qianjiang Evening News, since 1990, Fang Yong, taking advantage of his position as a computer accountant, had embezzled public funds of more than 1.41 million yuan (about US$180,000) in ways of opening false accounts, forging bills, usurping accounts of others, arbitraging through transferring accounts and forging sub-accounts, etc. His case is identified as the first computer embezzlement crime in China.
Fang Yong fled China on August 4, 1990 and absconded to Canada. After the case was uncovered, the Ministry of Public Security issued a warrant for Fang Yong's arrest through Interpol. Fang Yong remained undetected until last January when he was deported out of Canada by a court verdict and subsequently returned to China.
