Chinese court agrees to Bo Xilai appeal

A Chinese high court has agreed to hear an appeal from convicted former Communist party senior Bo Xilai, according to a statement released by Jinan Intermediate People's Court.

Bo Xilai was sentenced to life in prison for bribe-taking, as well as 15 years for embezzlement and seven years for abuse of power after he was convicted in September.

He filed his appeal before an October 8 deadline. The court reviewed it and accepted, the Shandong Province Supreme People's Court said.
