Former Chinese Admissions Official Admits Accepting Bribes

December 4, 2015

A former admissions director at a Chinese university admitted accepting millions of dollars in bribes, the Associated Press reported. Prosecutors said Cai Rongsheng, the former head of admissions at Renmin University in Beijing, received $3.6 million between 2005 and 2013 in exchange for helping 44 students gain admission or change majors.

The case is part of a broader crackdown on corruption involving Chinese university administrators.
