Bribery

Jorn and his bribeAlthough I will be missing the actual trial, as I’m going to Xi’an, I wanted to help my team out as much as I could. So I bribed the judge. Bribery has a long and glorious tradition in China. It still can prove necessary from time to time in order for things to go smoothly.

Once I learned our judge was Jorn, a German student, I immediately knew what to bribe him with. Dark beer is rare in Asia, so a mini-keg of dark German beer… …the case is in the bag. I paid 215 RMB for the keg of Köstritzer. That is a fairly considerable sum, but it was too good of fit and made for a memorable start to class.

We are going to drink it when I get back from Xi’an.

    Beer always works.

  • Jorn and the other Germans drank it without me.  In hindsight it was a fairly substantial bribe for a student. We never even won the case, not sure if my teacher got wind of it. But I thought it was very appropriate for a Chinese Law class.  ;-)
