Former political advisor under probe
(07-15 16:40)

Yang Baohua, a former senior political adviser of central China's Hunan Province, is under investigation by the Supreme People's Procuratorate (SPP) for alleged bribery-taking, the SPP said Tuesday in a statement.
The SPP has taken coercive measures against him, according to the statement.
The news came after the Communist Party of China Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) announced earlier this morning that Yang was stripped of Party membership for serious discipline and law violation.
The CCDI said that Yang was found to have taken advantage of his position to seek interests for others, taken huge bribes and committed adultery. --Xinhua
