Chinese rocket crime

Interesting but unfortunate item I just found: According to the BBC, a Chinese state newspaper reported that a court in Beijing found Li Jianzhong, the former head of CALT, builder of China's Long March rockets, guilty of embezzling $20 million (approximately 160,838,000 Chinese Yuan, per my converter). Li has been jailed for life. A colleague, Zhang Lingying, was sentenced to 20 years.

Space crime does not pay.
