China: Shanghai police chief under investigation as anti-corruption campaign targets security services

Shanghai’s police chief has been placed under investigation by anti-corruption investigators amid a major purge targeting corruption and political disloyalty in China’s massive security apparatus.

Gong Daoan, Shanghai’s police chief since 2017, is suspected of “serious violations of discipline and the law” and has been placed under investigation, according to a brief notice by the Central Committee of Discipline Inspection, the party’s top anti-graft watchdog.

The notice did not give further details of the allegations against him but investigations of this kind can lead to anything from a major demotion to a death sentence.
