(AP) A court in northeast China has begun hearing a fraud and embezzlement case involving a bank branch manager who spent eight years in Canada before returning last year to face the charges against him.

Gao Shan is charged with swindling more than 1 billion yuan ($163 million) between 2000 and 2004 with other suspects.

Gao was the head of a Bank of China branch in the northeastern province of Heilongjiang. He left for Canada in 2004 and returned to China last year.

The Harbin Intermediate People's Court said on its website Sunday that there are seven defendants and that the hearing is expected to last until Monday.
