Ren Hua, a former vice chairperson of the government of Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region in northwest China, has been expelled from the Communist Party of China (CPC) and dismissed from public office over serious violations of Party discipline and laws, the country’s top anti-graft body announced Monday.
Ren reaped huge profits from illegal lending, taking advantage of large sums of money of the entities or individuals within her administration or service sphere, the authority said.
She also took undue advantage of her position to seek benefits for others in terms of enterprise operation, project contracting and land transfer, and illegally accepted huge amounts of money and property in return, it added.
Ren’s acts constituted a serious breach of office duties and she was suspected of taking bribes, the anti-graft body said, adding that her illicit gains will be confiscated and suspected crimes will be transferred to the procuratorate for prosecution.
