Disciplinary officials from Beijing are probing a senior member of the Standing Committee of the Communist Party of China Guangdong Provincial Committee for alleged corruptions when he was the mayor of Maoming City in Guangdong. Zhou Zhenhong, a ranking official in the province, was accused of serious violation of the Party’s disciplines, the Central commission for Discipline Inspection of CPC announced today. Zhou, 55, disappeared from the public view after he made a report last Friday at the annual session of the Guangdong Provincial People’s Congress. A source close to the investigators said Zhou has been placed under “shuanggui,” a Chinese term meaning if a Party member is suspected of wrongdoings, he is asked to confess or explain at a stipulated place and time, according to Caixin.com.
