Stephen engle is on the phone with us now.

What are you seeing right now?

They are in the afternoon break and they will resume at 2:00. it is fairly quiet right now.

Some sporadic incidences of protests from petitioners in china.

They often show up at these kinds of events and try to get the attention of media -- media.

There is still a heavy police force.

They showed some restraint.

Most times, they bundle them away.

I am just looking down the street at where the protests was held.

It has been completely cleared.

In the court room, a lot of interesting revelations.

About 3.5 hours on the stand.

Inside the courthouse, he was accused of taking bribes.

3.6 million u.s. dollars.

He denies the charges.

He is not necessarily cooperating completely with the prosecution.

People speculated this was done and he was going to cooperate.

He is denying those things.

He says he will provide evidence, eventually, to prove all the money supposedly taken in and his official capacity.

He was a central figure in the prudential capital.

Charges of bribery are just the first of many different charges they will be unveiling, most likely in the afternoon session, including abuses of power.

We will speak to you again
