The ex-police chief at the heart of China's biggest political scandal in years did not contest the charges against him, court officials have said.

The Chengdu trial of Wang Lijun for defection, abuse of power and bribe-taking began in secret on Monday and ended on Tuesday.

The verdict would be given at a later date, court officials said.
