Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The father of Chinese high-speed rail will not be executed, but will serve at least 10 years :

Liu was a driving force behind the modernisation of China's rail system, a project that included building 10,000 miles of high-speed rail track by 2020 - with a budget of £170bn, one of the most expensive engineering feats in recent history.

Analysts say Liu's ruthless efficiency earned him the protection of higher party officials, allowing his corruption to go unchecked. He was placed under investigation in February 2011.
