Guizhou top adviser removed from post

THE top political adviser of Guizhou Province has been dismissed because of "severe discipline violation," the Xinhua news agency reported yesterday.

A source in the Organization Department of the Communist Party of China Central Committee confirmed that Huang Yao, 61, had been removed from his post as chairman of Guizhou provincial committee of Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference.

Huang served as Guizhou's top adviser from January 2007.

Huang was one among the 13 minister-level officials disciplined this year.

Only two weeks ago, two senior officials in northern China were sacked by the Communist Party of China.

Song Yong, deputy director of northeastern China's Liaoning Provincial People's Congress, and Li Tangtang, vice director of the government office in northwestern China's Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region, are still under investigation, according to Xinhua.

Since August, several former provincial and ministerial officials have been expelled from the Party and found guilty of corruption.

The list includes a former vice president of the Supreme People's Court, Huang Songyou, and a former top political adviser of Guangdong Province, Chen Shaoji.

At almost the same time, Chen Tonghai, former chairman of Sinopec, Asia's largest oil refiner, was sentenced to death with a two-year reprieve on July 16. He was charged with corruption involving 195.73 million yuan (US$28.65 million).

On January 21, Liu Zhihua, former vice mayor of Beijing, lost his appeal of a previous death sentence ruling with two-year reprieve for his being convicted of graft in connection with 2008 Olympic construction contracts.
