Qiu Daming, former deputy head of the discipline inspection commission and supervisory commission of Northeast China's Jilin Province, was arrested, according to an announcement.
The investigation into Qiu, who was suspected of bribery and embezzlement, launched by the National Supervisory Commission (NSC) was concluded and transferred to the procuratorial organs, according to a statement issued by the Supreme People's Procuratorate (SPP) on Thursday.
After the SPP's designation, the People's Procuratorate of Hebei Province reviewed the case and filed charges, and has recently made a decision to arrest Qiu, the SPP said in the statement.
Qiu was dismissed from his public post and expelled from the Communist Party of China (CPC) in December, according to an earlier statement issued by the CPC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection and NSC.
An investigation found that Qiu had obstructed the investigations of some cases, leaking information involving the work of central authorities' disciplinary inspectors, Xinhua News Agency reported.
He had violated the Party's relevant regulations to carry out profit-making activities, used his power or influence to buy underpriced houses and sought benefits for himself and his relatives, according to the statement.
He was also found to have taken advantage of his posts to seek benefits for others in exchange for money and gifts and to embezzle public funds.
