FUZHOU, Jan. 12 -- A former official in Quanzhou City, in the eastern province of Fujian, was sentenced to 15 years in prison for graft, a local court said on Monday.

The Longyan City court found Luo Guoqing guilty of accepting bribes amounting 9.09 million yuan (1.46 million U.S.dollars) from 2005 to 2011.

Luo was previously a member of standing committee of the Communist Party of China's (CPC) Quanzhou Municipal Committee, and Party secretary for Nan'an City.

Luo had taken advantage of his authority, the court verdict read.

Luo's personal wealth, around two million yuan, has been confiscated and the proceeds of his crimes will be returned to the state, the court said.
