一中国留学生贿赂教授被判刑:双语新闻报道

根据英国 《每日邮报》报道,22日,因试图贿赂教授获取学位,一名中国留学生被判入狱12个月;同时,又因其携带仿真枪械,被判6个月监禁。

The son of a Chinese government official was jailed yesterday for trying to bribe a British university professor with £5,000 to pass his degree.

Yang Li also took an imitation firearm into the meeting with the don and another senior academic at Bath University.

A court heard that Li, 26, was studying a masters degree in innovation and technology management and feared failure.

He was dismayed to learn he had been given just 37 per cent for his dissertation which was a fail - and would have meant him spending an extra year at the university.

That would have affected Li’s visa which he was hoping to upgrade from a student visa to a tier 1 visa.

Li, who was born and educated in China, asked to meet Professor Andrew Graves and Dr Stephen Shepherd to discuss his options.

Bristol Crown Court heard he told the pair ‘I am a businessman’ before placing £5,000 in cash on the table.

He then said: 'There is a fourth option, you can keep the money if you give me a pass mark and I won’t bother you again.'

When that failed and he was asked to leave he picked up his coat and a 0.177 air pistol fell from the pocket.

Defending Li, Blake James said Mr Li came from an affluent family in China, where his father is a respected government official and businessman.

Mr James said Li was not a 'sham student' and had come to the UK in 2006 for a Computer Science degree at the University of Bath, which he passed.

He claimed Li had withdrawn the money that morning ‘for the weekend’ and had not meant to use it as a bribe. He added that the gun was in his pocket as he thought it was safer than the car, and he had no intention of using the weapon which he used for target practice.

根据英国 《每日邮报》报道,22日,因试图贿赂教授获取学位,一名中国留学生被判入狱12个月;同时,又因其携带仿真枪械,被判6个月监禁。

26岁的中国留学生李洋 (音)正在英国巴斯大学就读研究生,专业方向是创新和技术管理。然而,他的学位论文没有及格,只得到了37分,及格线是40分。教授为李洋提供了三种选择,但无论李洋怎么选,他都无法如期毕业,必须再读一年。而延期毕业更会影响到他的签证。李洋原本打算在毕业后将他的签证从学生签证申请升级成第一类签证。

据布里斯托尔皇家法院,李洋在见到两位导师后就告诉他们:“我是个商人。”随后,李洋掏出5000英镑现金放在桌上,说: “如果你们让我及格并且毕业,你们就可以拿走桌上的钱。我保证再也不会来烦你们。”

这一招没有起效,教授不肯答应修改李洋学位论文的成绩,还要求他马上离开。在李洋起身拿外套的时候,一把0.177口径的手枪从他的外套口袋里掉了出来。李洋的律师休·布雷克·詹姆斯辩护称,李洋来自一个比较富有的中国家庭,性格很好,而他的父亲是一名中国政府官员,同时也是一名商人。当天早上,李洋拿钱出来是为了和教授一起欢度周末,而不是为了贿赂他们以获取学位。 “李洋已经习惯了随身携带大量现金。他当天一时冲动把身上的钱都拿出来,这确实让对方感觉荒谬,更对他产生误会。”
