On the morning of January 29, 2021, the second intermediate people's Court of Tianjin executed Lai Xiaomin in accordance with legal procedures, less than a month after he was sentenced to death on January 5, 2021, which should be the fastest death penalty in economic crimes.

According to the law, the time limit for appeal and protest against a criminal judgment is 10 days. The court of second instance shall conclude the trial within two months from the next day of receiving the judgment. Therefore, in general criminal cases, it usually takes more than one month from the first trial to the second trial, and special cases may speed up the progress of trial. In death penalty cases, after the death sentence of the first instance is upheld in the second instance, it needs to be reported to the Supreme People's court for approval. It usually takes months or even years for the Supreme People's court to approve death penalty cases because of the different circumstances of the cases. The order of execution of death penalty issued by the Supreme People's court shall be delivered by the higher people's court to the people's Court of first instance for execution. The people's Court of first instance shall execute the death penalty within seven days after receiving the order. It took 24 days from the death sentence in the first instance to the execution after the Supreme People's court approved the death penalty, which shows the importance of the judicial organ. From this case, we can see that the state's attitude to resolutely crack down on corruption is clear and strict, and gradually achieves the state of not daring to corrupt and not corrupt, and finally achieves the long-term goal of not wanting to corrupt.

Brief introduction to the case

Approved by the Supreme People's court, on the morning of January 29, 2021, the Tianjin Second Intermediate People's court executed Lai Xiaomin in accordance with legal procedures.

On January 5, 2021, the Tianjin Second Intermediate People's court sentenced Lai Xiaomin to death for the crimes of bribery, corruption and bigamy, depriving him of his political rights for life and confiscating all his property. After Lai Xiaomin's appeal, Tianjin Higher People's court ruled to reject the appeal, maintain the original judgment, and report to the Supreme People's court for approval.

Lai Xiaomin's bribery amount is particularly huge, the criminal circumstances are particularly serious, the social impact is particularly bad, causing particularly heavy losses to the interests of the state and the people, the crime is extremely serious, and should be severely punished according to law. Although Lai Xiaomin has made great contributions, the fact, nature, plot and harm to society of his crime of bribery are not enough to give him lenient punishment. In this case, the facts identified in the judgments of the first and second instance are clear, the evidence is accurate and sufficient, the conviction is accurate, and the sentencing is appropriate. The trial procedure is legal. Accordingly, the Supreme People's court approved the Tianjin Higher People's court to maintain the criminal ruling of the first instance that Lai Xiaomin was sentenced to death.
