Cai Jie, former senior official of Central China’s Wuhan City, has been expelled from the Communist Party of China (CPC) and dismissed from public office over serious violations of discipline and laws, according to a statement by Hubei’s anti-graft body on Saturday.
Last August, Hubei’s disclipine inspection commission launched an investigation into Cai, who served as member of Wuhan CPC standing committee and secretary general of the Wuhan CPC Committee.
Cai was accused of making false statements to investigators, refusing to report personal matters to authorities, taking bribes and abusing power.
Local prosecutors will also join in the case and file charges against Cai over his criminal wrongdoings, said the statement.
