hey guys i found this today, it was really interesting that china excute officials for corruption, it seems a good message to send to the officials. they say it is not completely working in china, but i guess things could be worse, maybe in our countries if they used this law things may get better, hopefully

From The New York Times:
For the second time in three months, a former high-ranking official at China’s top food and drug watchdog agency has been sentenced to death for corruption and approving bogus drugs, according to the state-run news media.
Cao Wenzhuang, who until 2005 was in charge of drug registration approvals at the State Food and Drug Administration, was accused of accepting over $300,000 in bribes from two pharmaceutical companies and helping undermine the public’s confidence in an agency that is supposed to be safeguarding the nation’s health.
