5 ex-officials under investigation
Su Shulin, former governor of Fujian province, has been put under investigation on suspicion of accepting bribes, the Supreme People’s Procuratorate announced on Tuesday.
Su, also former deputy chief of the Communist Party of China Fujian Provincial Committee, was expelled from the CPC and dismissed from public office on July 4 for corruption and violating the Party’s code of conduct.
The SPP also announced an investigation into four other officials suspected of taking bribes: Yang Chongyong, a former senior legislator in Hebei province; Wang Yincheng, former president of People’s Insurance Company of China; Zhou Chunyu, former vice-governor of Anhui province; and Cai Xiyou, former general manager of State-owned chemical maker Sinochem Group.
The five have been placed under “coercive measures”, which may include summons by force, bail, residential surveillance, detention or arrest.
Investigations into the cases are currently underway, according to the SPP.
