The New York Post on 14 January carried a report claiming that a disgraced banker involved in one of China’s biggest financial-corruption cases drove around with a trunk full of cash bribes that he later stashed in an apartment he called “the supermarket”.  He was Lai Xiaomin, the former chairman of distressed-debt investor China Huarong Asset Management.  More than $29 million was eventually discovered by authorities.  Lai was arrested in November 2018 and has been accused of taking more than nearly $232 million, in bribes, according to news reports, through his positions as an ex-Communist Party chief and head of Huarong.
