Bo Xilai Trial Ends in China

Monday, August 26, 2013

One of China's most closest watched trials in decades came to a close today.

The fallen communist party politician Bo Xilai is facing charges of bribery, embezzlement, and abuse of power in his attempt to conceal the poisoning of British businessman Neil Heywood.

A verdict is expected in September.

Jonathan Fenby is China director of the research company Trusted Sources. He's also author of the book: "Tiger Head, Snake Tails," and he's been closely following the trial. He joins the program to provide an update on the trial and to discuss a possible verdict.
