Deputy head of provincial legislature expelled from Party, office

FORMER deputy head of the standing committee of the provincial people's congress of central Henan Province,Qin Yuhai, has been expelled from the Communist Party of China (CPC) and dismissed from public office following an internal graft investigation.

The CPC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) made the announcement on Friday.

The CCDI found that Qin impropriated public property; accepted bribes, cash and gifts; squandered public money; abusing his power in promotion of officials and business operations in exchange for huge amounts of bribes.

Qin was also found to have committed adultery, according to the CCDI.

"As a senior Party official, Qin seriously violated Party rules and discipline, and the law," said the statement, adding that his "vile" wrongdoings continued after the 18th Party Congress in late 2012.

Qin's illegal gains have been confiscated and his case will now be subject to a criminal investigation, according to the statement.

He has been under investigation since September.
