PENA MORTE: CONDANNA 'SOSPESA' PER DIRIGENTE CINESE

PECHINO, - E' stato condannato alla pena di  morte ''sospesa'' Wang Wulong, ex-alto dirigente del Partito Comunista Cinese nella provincia del Jiangsu. Wu e' stato  riconosciuto colpevole di aver chiesto e ricevuto ''mazzette'' per oltre 600 mila euro. La sospensione per due anni della pena  concessa a Wang, significa che tra due anni la magistratura esaminera' il suo comportamento in carcere e decidera' se  tramutare la condanna in ergastolo o procedere con l'esecuzione  capitale. In Cina le esecuzioni sono, secondo i gruppi umanitari internazionali, tra le cinquemila e le diecimila all'anno. I reati per i quali e' prevista la pena capitale sono piu' di sessanta, in maggioranza reati non di sangue.
