It’s not a good year for Carrefour in China. First all that kerfuffle over some alleged involvement in some political bullshit, and now eight of their managers in Beijing are in court charged with taking bribes. 新京报/The Beijing News’ reporter Chen Junjie and correspondent Chen Qian report:


Eight Beijing Carrefour section chiefs suspected of taking bribes charged


Yesterday morning Chaoyang Court announced that one manager of Beijing Carrefour’s meat section and section chiefs of the lean meat sections of seven stores, eight people in total, because they are suspected of receiving a total of  over 280 thousand yuan in bribes, were charged in that court. The court has accepted the case.


The charge sheet shows seven stores involved are Malian Dao Store, Shuangjing Store, Tongzhou Store, Fangzhuang Store, Fangyuan  Building Store, and Zhongguancun Store. The youngest of the eight people is 25, the oldest is 45.

 Hmm… That’s only six stores, but Shuangjing was listed twice. The Carrefour China website lists nine stores in Beijing with only one bearing the name “Shuangjing”. Makes you wonder which of the remaining three is involved.

Anyway, I don’t really want to get into the details of the case. It could be interesting to see what happens next, though….
