BEIJING, May 29 (Xinhua) -- A former senior municipal political advisor for Harbin, capital of northeast China's Heilongjiang Province, has been indicted on charges of taking bribes, the Supreme People's Procuratorate (SPP) said Friday.

Jiang Guowen, former chairman of the Harbin Municipal Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, was accused of taking advantage of his various former positions to seek profits for others in project contracting, litigation enforcement, job promotion and other matters, accepting vast sums of money and gifts in return, the SPP said in a statement.

Jiang's case was handed over to the people's procuratorate of Hulun Buir city in Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region for review and prosecution upon the designation of the SPP after the National Supervisory Commission concluded the investigation, it said.

Jiang will stand trial in the intermediate people's court of Hulun Buir city, 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.
