Bei­jing: Gong Qing­gai, a for­mer se­nior Tai­wan af­fairs of­fi­cial, has been placed un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion on sus­pi­cion of bribery, the Supreme Peo­ple’s Procu­ra­torate (SPP) an­nounced on Fri­day. The SPP said Mr Gong was also sub­ject to com­pul­sory mea­sures, a Chi­nese le­gal term that can cover ar­rest, de­ten­tion, sum­mons, bail pend­ing trial, or res­i­den­tial sur­veil­lance. Mr Gong was deputy head of the Tai­wan Work Of­fice of the Com­mu­nist Party of China (CPC) Cen­tral Com­mit­tee and the Tai­wan Af­fairs Of­fice of the State Coun­cil.

China’s top anti-graft body, the Cen­tral Com­mis­sion for Dis­ci­pline In­spec­tion (CCDI), said in a state­ment last month that Gong was dis­hon­est in re­ports about his per­sonal as­sets, ac­cepted gifts, used his post to seek ben­e­fits for other peo­ple’s busi­nesses, and made use of lux­ury cars he did not own. The CCDI ex­pelled him from the CPC and his post.
