This was reported on Wednesday by Xinhua news agency.
The former deputy head of China Energy is suspected of serious violations of party discipline and Chinese legislation. Li Dong was also a member of the leadership group of the party cell of the corporation.
The anti-corruption campaign was launched after Xi Jinping's group came to power in 2012-2013. At the recent twentieth CPC Congress, Xi Jinping called corruption "the biggest cancer that threatens the viability and combat capability of the party." The new arrests of officials suspected of corruption indicate the determination of the renewed party leadership to continue the anti-corruption campaign, writes TASS.
