'Heiress' suspected of embezzling

A SENIOR official in a northern China city has been sacked on suspicion of attempting to embezzle a deceased businessman's estate, worth hundreds of millions of yuan, by pretending to be his only heiress.

Wang Yali, deputy secretary of the Communist Youth League of China's Shijiazhuang committee, is under scrutiny, the Beijing Times reported yesterday.

Wang had claimed she was the daughter and the only child of Wang Popan, an entrepreneur in Hebei provincial capital Shijiazhuang City.

According to Wang Popan's son, Wang Zhongxin, he and other family members met Wang Yali on August 8, 2008, at the mortuary of Shijiazhuang No.2 People's Hospital after Wang Popan's death.

Wang Yali visited the mortuary accompanied by more than 20 police officers and demanded an autopsy, claiming that Wang Popan died unnaturally and might have been poisoned.

However, her proposal was refused by Wang Zhongxin, and she left the scene.

Wang Popan's daughter Wang Cuimian then launched a probe and discovered that Wang Yali was a fellow townsman of Wang Popan.

Wang Yali's former name was Ding Zengxin, born in 1969, Wang Cuimian said.

Wang Popan became Ding's godfather in 1989.
