Ningxia Hui official faces probe

A SENIOR official in northwestern China is under investigation for breaking regulations, according to the Communist Party of China's disciplinary watchdog today.

Li Tangtang, vice director of the government office in Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region, was suspected of "seriously violating discipline," said an official of the CPC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection, reported Xinhua news agency.

Li, 55, formerly vice governor of Shaanxi Province, was reprimanded in 2007 for illegally soliciting recommendations to help his promotion. He was sent to his present position in 2008.

Xinhua said frequent investigation by the Party's disciplinary watchdog was a sign of China's determination to root out corrupt officials. Earlier this week, an investigation was also launched into an associate deputy from Liaoning Province People's Congress.

Since August, several former provincial and ministerial officials have been expelled from the Party and found guilty of corruption, including former vice president of the Supreme People's Court Huang Songyou and former top political adviser of south China's Guangdong Province Chen Shaoji.
