Several Issues Concerning the Corruption Crimes of Private Entrepreneurs: Based on Empirical Research

Yidan ZHUO, Chao SHAO


Studies have shown that top leaders and department heads of privately-owned enterprises differ significantly in the types of corruption crimes and the links where crimes are committed. Therefore, corruption crimes of private entrepreneurs should be countered with the methods well targeted at the subjects of crime. In addition, penalties do not fit crimes by the conviction and penalty imposition for corruption crimes, which seriously undermine the effect of criminal penalties on crime prevention. Therefore, the sentencing range should be elaborated and other measures should be taken so that crimes and penalties will be balanced.
