Murder trial for wife of Chinese politician ends
Gu Kailai and a household aide face charges of murdering Neil Heywood, a British businessman who had close ties to the Bo family.
The trial is being held the Hefei Intermediate People’s Court in eastern China. The accused are being represented by government-appointed lawyers from Anhui province, of which Hefei is the capital.
The court’s deputy director Tang Yigan said the trial has ended but would not say when a verdict was expected.
Although two British diplomats were allowed into the court under an agreement with China because of Heywood’s nationality, international media were not allowed in.
