    12 June 2015.  By Alexander Neill, Shangri-La Dialogue Senior Fellow for Asia-Pacific Security On 11 June the First Intermediate People’s Court of Tianjin posted a five-paragraph statement on its website, revealing the sentencing of former politburo standing-committee member Zhou Yongkang to life imprisonment.
