Two more Chinese officials sacked for graft

Sep 4 2013, 5:54am CDT | by IANS

Beijing, Sep 4 (IANS) Two more Chinese officials were expelled from the Communist Party of China (CPC) and removed from their posts for involvement in corruption, following an investigation earlier this week.

Beijing, Sep 4 — Two more Chinese officials were expelled from the Communist Party of China (CPC) and removed from their posts for involvement in corruption, following an investigation earlier this week.

Wang Suyi, former senior official of north China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, has been expelled from the CPC and dismissed from public office, after being investigated for serious discipline violations, announced the CPC Central Commission for Discipline in a statement Wednesday, reported Xinhua.

Wang was a member of the Standing Committee of the CPC Committee of Inner Mongolia and headed a department of the regional party committee.

According to the party, Wang took advantage of his position to seek benefit for others and accepted a huge amount of money and property either personally or through his family members.

Li Daqiu, former chairman of the Guangxi Federation of Trade Unions, has also been expelled from the CPC and public office for breach of discipline.

Both of them were suspected of violating the criminal law, the party commission said.

Their cases will be transferred to judicial departments.

On Tuesday, the CPC Central Committee removed Jiang Jiemin as head of the state-owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission (SASAC) because of suspected serious discipline violations, two days after officials confirmed he was being investigated.

Jiang is the first full member of the 18th Central Committee of the CPC under graft investigation.

The list of fallen officials in the latest anti-corruption campaign included Liu Tienan, former deputy director of the National Development and Reform Commission, Li Chuncheng, then deputy party chief in Sichuan province, and Wang Yongchun, a former deputy general manager of the China National Petroleum Corporation.

In early July, former railway minister Liu Zhijun was given a suspended death penalty on charges of bribery and abuse of power, making him the highest-ranking official sentenced so far for such offences since the country's new leaders took office in March.

The CPC leadership considers corruption one of the most pressing and grave problems that the party needed to solve.

Chinese President Xi Jinping, who is also general secretary of the CPC Central Committee, vowed to go after both "tigers" and "flies," or high-ranking and low-level corrupt officials, as well as contain political power within a "cage of regulations".
