China's former drug safety head executed

Click here.

BEIJING (Reuters) - China on Wednesday hailed the swift execution of the nation's former drug safety chief as a warning to corrupt officials while detailing a web of graft that thrived for years without punishment.

Zheng Xiaoyu, former head of the State Food and Drug Administration (SFDA), dominated television and print news a day after he was executed for taking some 6.5 million yuan ($850,000) in bribes to let medicine companies slip past his regulatory net.

Unfortunately, we are not in China. So we are unlikely to witness the same punishment for those corrupt officials.

Mike Adams of Newstarget made this cartoon pertaining to the ludicrous situation.
