China sends Rio Tinto employees to jail
A Chinese court has sentenced four employees of mining giant Rio Tinto to jail terms of seven to 14 years on bribery and commercial secrets charges.
The court in Shanghai said Monday that Australian national Stern Hu and three Chinese co-workers were guilty of charges of bribery and stealing business secrets.
The stiff sentences come in a case seen as a barometer of China’s treatment of foreign business at a time of rising trade friction.
I have to wonder if you can do business in China without engaging in some generous cooperation. As a nation, they did a little door opening themselves with the Clintons.
