"China not considering eliminating death penalty for corruption"

Jurist has this story, covering remarks by a legislator:

The guidelines instruct courts to issue the death penalty only to those who commit "extremely serious" crimes. However, the guidelines also state that reprieves should be issued in certain cases as allowed by law.
