Senior official dismissed from party for graft
(05-08 11:37)

A former senior official from Guizhou Province has been expelled from the Communist Party of China and dismissed from public office, said the CPC discipline inspection agency here Thursday.
Investigations found that Liao Shaohua, a former Standing Committee member of the CPC Guizhou Provincial Committee and party chief of Zunyi City, used his positions to seek profits for others and accepted bribes, said a statement from the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection of the CPC.
He abused his power and caused serious loss of state property, the statement said.
Liao violated Party disciplines and is suspected of breaking the law. His case has been handed over to prosecutors, the commission said.
The commission announced in October that Liao was being investigated for graft. He was removed from his posts days later. --Xinhua
