WUHAN: An official of Wuhan, capital city of central China's Hubei Province, has been removed from public office and placed under criminal investigation for suspected bribe taking and malfeasance, the local discipline watchdog said Saturday (Feb 22).

Cai Jie, a former standing committee member of the Wuhan municipal committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC) and the committee's secretary-general, was also expelled from the CPC, the discipline inspection and supervisory commission of Hubei Province said, citing Cai's violations of Party disciplines and laws.

An official statement said Cai took advantage of his position to seek benefits for others and illegally procured huge amounts of funds and property.

He was also accused of abusing power to illegally allocate government funds to private companies, being dishonest, and defying investigations on him.

The statement said Cai has been transferred to the procuratorate for further investigation and subsequent prosecution. - Xinhua/Asian Ness Network
