Three officials under graft probe
(07-22 15:17)

Prosecutors have opened investigations into two officials and transferred the case of another to prosecution for suspected abuse of power and bribery, said the Supreme People's Procuratorate (SPP) Tuesday.
Nong Xiaowen, former board chairman of the Guangxi Tourism Investment Group Co., Ltd., and Kong Xiangpeng, former deputy director of the Standing Committee of the Wuzhou Municipal People's Congress, are suspected of abusing power and taking bribes.
They will undergo judicial investigation and be placed "under coercive measures," according to the SPP.
Liao Xiaobo, former deputy director of the regional Development and Reform Commission, is suspected of taking bribes. His case was transferred to prosecution after the investigation was closed, the SPP said. --Xinhua
