As trial ends, China’s Bo Xilai says former aide had crush on his wife

Story highlights

The trial concludes after five days of hearings in the eastern city of Jinan

Bo accuses his former police chief of having a crush on his wife

Two sources say the court hasn't disclosed the full proceedings

Some key parts that may put Bo in a good light have been left out, they say

Jinan, China CNN  — 

The trial of disgraced Chinese Communist Party high-flyer Bo Xilai concluded Monday with a dramatic final flourish as he accused the former police chief who brought about his downfall of having a crush on his wife.

Bo’s politically sensitive corruption trial has brought forth a plethora of rich, eye-opening details about the apparently lavish and emotionally fraught life of his family and inner circle, giving Chinese people insights into how some of the ruling elite live.

But at the same time, doubts have arisen about the completeness of the account of court proceedings provided by Chinese authorities.

Still, over the past five days, the court has heard allegations of adultery, a punch to the head, squabbles over a villa on the French Riviera and attempts to cover up the murder of a British businessman.

Was Bo’s trial truly transparent?

As the trial wrapped up Monday, the prosecution called for Bo to be strictly punished over the charges of bribery, embezzlement and abuse of power. The court in the eastern city of Jinan said the verdict would be announced at a later date.
