|Party purges two more corrupt cadres from Guangxi and Inner Mongolia over cash, property 'crimes'
Two senior officials have been expelled from China’s Communist Party today over corruption allegations.
Li Daqiu, former vice chairman of the Guangxi Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference and Wang Suyi, former senior official of Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, have been expelled, the party's disciplinary body announced today.
Li, who was the former chairman of the Guangxi Federation of Trade Unions, was ejected from the party and public office for discipline violations.
The CPC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection made the announcement today.
Li’s downfall came several months after Chengdu’s former deputy provincial party chief Li Chuncheng was removed in December last year.
In early July, the CCDI announced that Li was under investigation for suspected disciplinary violations. According to the CCDI statement, Li took advantage of his posts to seek benefits for others. He accepted a large sum of money and property by himself or through his family relatives.
Li's behaviors have violated party disciplines and are suspected to be crimes.
According to party disciplinary rules and the Civil Servant Law, the CCDI, after deliberation and getting approval from the CPC Central Committee, decided to expel Li from the CPC and the public office, confiscate his illegally-obtained money and property and transfer his case to the judicial organs.
Wang, who was investigated for serious discipline violations, was also dismissed from public office.
He was a member of the Standing Committee of the CPC Committee of Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region and head of the United Front Work Department of the regional party committee.
Investigations revealed that he took advantage of his position to seek benefits for others and accepted huge amount of money and property personally or through his family members.
He broke party disciplines and was suspected of violating the criminal law, the statement said.
Wang's illicit gains have been confiscated and his case will be transferred to judicial departments, it said. —Xinhua
