Top Guangdong official investigated for bribes

A SENIOR Guangdong Province official has been suspended from duty while he is investigated for corruption and accepting bribes.

The investigation of Liu Youjun, the director of Guangdong's labor and social security department, may be linked with the corruption investigation of Guangdong's former top political adviser, Chen Shaoji, which would make him the fourth Guangdong official involved, the Beijing-based Caijing magazine quoted an unidentified source as saying.

The Central Commission for Disciplinary Inspection of the Communist Party of China ordered its Guangdong committee to investigate Liu after information was discovered during the inquiry into Chen.

From 2004 until last year, Liu took bribes, sought illegal profits for others and led a lavish life style, the source said.

Chen, chairman of the province's Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, has been under investigation since investigators into China's former home appliance king Huang Guangyu and Former Assistant Public Security Minister Zheng Shaodong were tipped off that he had a large amount of property that couldn't be accounted for.

Chen used to be director of Guangdong police, and Zheng was the executive deputy.

Zheng, 51, served as assistant minister of public security from 2005 until January 12, when he was stood down and investigated for allegedly accepting bribes while probing financial crimes.

He was linked to an investigation into gambling and money laundering that also involved Huang.
