CHONGQING, China — China’s leadership faced continued resistance on Friday in its efforts to hand down final judgment against deposed politician Bo Xilai, despite moving swiftly to wrap up a murder charge against his wife who now risks the death penalty.
Bo Xilai, once a contender for the top rungs of power, and his wife have been disgraced in the nation’s biggest political scandal in two decades, which centres on the murder in China of a British businessman who had been a close family friend.
Bo has not been implicated in the murder but has been accused of breaching internal party discipline, sometimes code for corruption.
