A to­tal of 14 na­tional po­lit­i­cal ad­vis­ers were ex­pelled due to cor­rup­tion, China’s top po­lit­i­cal ad­viser said. Yu Zheng­sheng made the re­mark on Tues­day at the open­ing meet­ing of Third Ses­sion of the 12th Na­tional Com­mit­tee of the Chi­nese Peo­ple’s Po­lit­i­cal Con­sul­ta­tive Con­fer­ence (CPPCC), the coun­try’s top po­lit­i­cal ad­vi­sory body. Those re­moved in­clude two vice-chair­men of the CPPCC Na­tional Com­mit­tee.

On Mon­day, a sec­ond group of 14 for­merly high and well­con­nected of­fi­cers in the Peo­ple’s Lib­er­a­tion Army were placed un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion and charged with vi­o­lat­ing Party dis­ci­pline and laws, a phrase re­fer­ring to cor­rup­tion, ac­cord­ing to an an­nounce­ment by the mil­i­tary.
