China Daily (USA) - - CHINA - By ZHANG YAN

Lyu Xi­wen, former deputy Party chief in Bei­jing, has been charged with ac­cept­ing bribes by a pros­e­cut­ing de­part­ment in­North­east­China’s Jilin prov­ince, ac­cord­ing to the Supreme Peo­ple’s Procu­ra­torate on Tues­day.

The Jilin In­ter­me­di­ate Peo­ple’s Court will hear the mat­ter at a later date.

Ac­cord­ing to the in­dict­ment, Lyu al­legedly abused her power to gain ben­e­fits for oth­ers and ac­cepted bribes.

Lyu, 61, was ex­pelled from the Party and re­moved from her post for “se­ri­ous vi­o­la­tions of dis­ci­pline”, ac­cord­ing to the Com­mu­nist Party of China’s Cen­tral Com­mis­sion for Dis­ci­pline In­spec­tion.

Ac­cord­ing to the CCDI, she was sus­pected of il­le­gally se­lect­ing and ap­point­ing Party of­fi­cers, in­ter­fer­ing in per­son­nel mat­ters and us­ing her job to ben­e­fit her rel­a­tives’ busi­ness projects, or to ben­e­fit other en­ter­prises in ex­change for bribes.

She was also ac­cused of liv­ing a lux­ury life­style and at­tend­ing pri­vate clubs and en­ter­tain­ment venues, ac­cord­ing to the CCDI.

In Novem­ber last year, she was in­ves­ti­gated by the top anti-graft watch­dog for “se­ri­ous dis­ci­plinary vi­o­la­tions”.

In a sep­a­rate state­ment, He Ji­acheng, former vice-pres­i­dent of the Chi­nese Acad­emy of Gov­er­nance, was charged with bribery by the Ningbo peo­ple’s procu­ra­torate in Zhe­jiang prov­ince, ac­cord­ing to the SPP.

Ac­cord­ing to pros­e­cu­tors, he used his job to ben­e­fit other en­ter­prises and ac­cepted bribes in cash or other as­sets.
