China Fires Top Official For Key Industrial Zone
The top Communist Party official responsible for a key industrial zone in northern China has been fired and expelled from the party over graft allegations, state media reported Wednesday.
No other details were given and Xinhua didn’t say when the action had been taken.
Expulsion from the party indicates that the party’s internal probe has been completed and the case will be forwarded to the courts for prosecution. Convictions in such cases are virtually guaranteed and sentences can range up to death.
