BEIJING, Feb. 27 (Xinhua) -- Zhao Zhengyong, former Party chief of northwest China's Shaanxi Province and a former senior national legislator, has been prosecuted on the charge of taking bribes, the Supreme People's Procuratorate (SPP) said Thursday.

Zhao was charged with abusing his various former positions to seek profits for others and accepting vast sums of money and gifts in return.

Zhao's case was transferred to the procuratorate of northern China's Tianjin Municipality for review and prosecution upon the designation of the SPP after the National Supervisory Commission concluded the investigation, according to the SPP statement.

Zhao will stand trial in the First Intermediate People's Court of Tianjin Municipality, it added.

The SPP said the prosecutors had informed the defendant of his litigation rights, interrogated him and listened to the defense counsel's opinions.
