PLA general Gu Junshan charged with graft, abuse of power
(03-31 19:08)

Prosecutors have brought corruption charges against a top general in a case highlighting abuse of power in China's military.
Xinhua said a military prosecutor charged Lt. Gen. Gu Junshan today with embezzlement, bribery, misuse of state funds and abuse of power.
Gu had been deputy head of the People's Liberation Army's General Logistics Department, a position putting him in charge of procurement and contracts for the 2.3 milllion-member armed forces.
Gu's prosecution had been expected for months after investigators last year hauled away four truckloads of alleged plunder including gold statues and boxes of high-end liquor from one of his mansions.
Gu has not been seen since early 2012 and his name has been removed from the official Defense Ministry website.—AP
