China: Former Xinjiang official expelled from China’s Communist Party over corruption allegations

The Communist Party’s anti-graft watchdog has expelled a former government official in China’s far western Xinjiang region for alleged corruption, according to state media.

Ren Hua, who was deputy chairwoman of Xinjiang’s regional government, has had her case handed over to the judicial body to prepare for trial, the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection said on its website.

She “was found to have flouted the original aspirations and founding mission of the Communist Party of China
and was disloyal to the party”, official news agency Xinhua reported on Monday, citing the commission.

“Ren reaped huge profits from illegal lending, taking advantage of … entities or individuals within her administration or service sphere,” the anti-corruption agency said, according to the report.
She also used 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 said.
