The procuratorial units in Sichuan, Jilin, and Shandong Province filed cases against three officials for alleged power abuse and bribery.

The case of Wu Zhen, former deputy of the food and drug administration, who is suspected of abusing his power and accepting bribes, was terminated by the State Supervision Commission and was examined and prosecuted by the People's Procuratorate of Chengdu, Sichuan Province, as designated by the Supreme People's Procuratorate (SPP).

Wu’s misconduct has caused major losses and should be investigated, according to the public prosecutors.

Li Shixiang, former vice chairman of the Beijing Municipal Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), is suspected of accepting bribes.

Li was arrested on suspicion of taking bribes, according to a decision by the Supreme People's Procuratorate in February.

Li’s bribery amount is extremely large and should be investigated for criminal responsibility, the public prosecutors said.

The case of Jin Suidong, former vice chairman of the Henan Provincial Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, who is suspected of accepting bribes, has been investigated, reviewed and prosecuted by the People's Procuratorate of Jinan, Shandong Province as designated by the SPP.

Jin was expelled from the Communist Party of China (CPC) for multiple violations in February.
