Zhang Huawei, who was a senior member of the disciplinary inspection team of the Communist Party of China Central Committee, pleaded guilty and said he would not appeal during an open trial at the Beijing No 2 Intermediate People's Court, the court said.
All his illegal gains from bribery will be confiscated, the court said.
Zhang was convicted of taking advantage of his position to provide assistance to organizations and individuals in business operations, real estate deals, promotions and other areas between 2006 and 2014. In return, he accepted property worth more than 32.84 million yuan, including paintings, gold, jade and jewelry, the court said.
The court delivered a lenient penalty to Zhang considering he confessed after being taken to custody and pleaded guilty, and that all the illegal gains have been collected, it said.
