JINAN, China (AP) — Officials say ousted politician Bo Xilai has denied some of the bribery accusations against him in his $4 million corruption trial — part of his first public comments since his detention early last year in one of China's biggest political scandals.
The Jinan Intermediate People's Court quoted Bo as saying Thursday that he denied taking bribes from development corporation official in the northeastern city of Dalian.
"I hope the judge will reasonably and fairly judge, and judge this according to the laws of our country," Bo also was quoted as saying in a stream of microblog postings issued by the court.
The tweets by court officials were a rare display of openness for a high-profile political trial in China.
