Chen Jianxue was already a wealthy man when he became a deputy branch manager at the Agricultural Bank of China in 1995. He soon went to the dark side, however, and began siphoning off funds to acquire, among other things, a disco, a supermarket, a shrimp farm and a plastics factory.
Realising that the game was up in 2003, we literally headed for the hills and lived in a cave for 8 years.
The Daily Telegraph reports that finally, after reading in late 2010 that criminals who turned themselves in would be treated leniently, Mr Chen decided to give himself up in November last year. He was allowed to meet with his family, and he apologised to his wife. His trial is under way in Hainan.
