Former Liaoning vice governor Liu Qiang has been expelled from the Party and dismissed from public office for serious discipline violations, according to the Central Committee of Discipline Inspection on Monday.
The CCDI statement said that Liu was guilty of nepotism and seeking benefits in selection of officials.
He was also found to have seriously violated the CPC eight-point code on frugality and maintaining close ties with the masses.
He sought pomp, ostentation and privileges, according to the statement.
Also, the statement accused Liu of bureaucracy and sloth in work and degradation and power-for-sex trades in life.
He took advantage of his power and influence to seek benefits for others, and accepted a "huge amount" of money and gifts in return.
He was found to have sought substantial benefits for his relatives' businesses and accepted valuable gifts.
