Rio 4 Trial: Look It Up Once It’s Done

Stern Hu, head of Rio Tinto’s Shanghai office, who stands accused of taking bribes and engaging in industrial espionage, has admitted taking bribes, though he contests the size of them. We know that via one of the attorney’s representing one of Hu’s three colleagues who are also on trial. Proceedings, which are expected to last three days, are closed, even to Australian consular officials for most of the time. The part dealing with infringing trade secrets charges is expected to start sometime on Tuesday. As Lu Zhian, an associate professor at Fudan University’s  Law School, told Xinhua, if we want to find out what went on, we “can refer to the court’s hearing records after the trial and appeal”.
