0

BEIJING: A Chinese official with a penchant for luxury watches who sparked outrage after he was pictured smiling at the scene of a fatal accident went on trial on Friday for corruption. Yang Dacai was dubbed “Brother Watch” by Chinese Internet users after images of him wearing various luxury brand watches were tracked down and circulated online. He came under scrutiny from furious netizens after he was pictured grinning broadly as he assessed the twisted wreckage of a bus and a methanol tanker following an accident, which left 36 people dead last year.
