A retired top general of the People’s Liberation Army has been formally charged with taking bribes and will face court martial in China’s highest-level military corruption case in more than six decades.

Military prosecutors said 73-year-old Guo Boxiong, who until 2012 was China’s highest-ranking uniformed officer, took advantage of his position to help others secure promotion and accepted bribes directly and through family members, the official Xinhua News Agency said Tuesday.
