Authority probes senior railway official

A SENIOR railway official is being investigated for involvement in economic crimes by the central disciplinary authority.

He Hongda, former political department director of the Ministry of Railways, was allegedly involved in economic crimes, said Qu Wanxiang, vice chief of China's anti-corruption authority and a standing member of the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection of the Communist Party of China.

He disappeared from the public in the second half of 2007, according to Beijing News.

He, 55, also a member of the ministry's Party group, once served as senior executive of the railway bureau of Harbin, capital of China's northern most Heilongjiang Province, and doubled as the chairman of the bureau's business arm – North Asia Group.

The group was reportedly linked to a series of corruption cases involving several senior railway officials, including Liu Guiting, the group's former chairman, Hao Xuebin, Harbin bureau's ex vice director, and Li Shutian, former director of Beijing railway bureau.

Li has been arrested.
