China can do it

The news is out: [A Chinese court has sentenced the former chairman of a huge state-owned financial company to death after finding him guilty of bribery. It’s a rare use of the most severe punishment in a long-running crackdown by Beijing on corruption.
Lai Xiaomin — who used to chair China Huarong Asset Management — was guilty of taking or seeking bribes totaling nearly 1.8 billion yuan ($277 million), a court in the port city of Tianjin said on Tuesday. Chinese state media reported in August that he pleaded guilty at an earlier hearing in the case.]

There are no victimless crimes.
