The vice mayor of one of the Chinese cities was suspected of corruption

Коррупция

This was reported by the CPC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection and the State Supervisory Committee.

We are talking about the vice-mayor of Tangshan city in the central province of Hebei, Li Jianzhong. According to the CPC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection and the State Supervisory Committee, it can be concluded that he is suspected of corruption.

The Commission states that these are serious violations of party discipline and the law. As a rule, such wording in internal party investigations in China means that an official is suspected of corruption.

The fight against corruption in China intensified in 2012, with the coming to power of the fifth generation of leaders led by Xi Jinping. Officials of any level face serious penalties for corruption crimes, up to life imprisonment.
