China has sentenced an influential former property executive and critic of President Xi Jinping to 18 years in prison for corruption.

Axar.az reports citing foreign media that Ren Zhiqiang, the former chairman of Huayuan, a state-owned real estate group, was also fined 4.2m yuan, Beijing No. 2 Intermediate Court said on its website on Tuesday.

The court verdict said the 69-year-old “voluntarily and truthfully confessed all his crimes”, and would not appeal the court’s decision.

Rights campaigners accuse Xi and the Communist party of using corruption charges as a way to silence dissent.
