Xinjiang official removed, expelled

A senior official of the Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region has been removed from office and deprived of his Communist Party of China membership for "serious disciplinary violations", the nation's top anti-graft watchdog said on Sunday.

Wang Yongzhi, 53, once a member of the Party Committee of Kashgar and ex-Party secretary of Shache county, was punished because he seriously violated discipline and political rules and ran against the central leadership's plan on Xinjiang's governance, a statement posted by the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection said on Sunday.

Wang formed factions and cliques and breached the Party's eight-point frugality rules issued after the 18th CPC National Congress in 2012, the statement said.

He did not accurately report his personal property and also gave huge bribes to obtain promotions, it said.

In 2010, the CPC General Office and the State Council jointly issued a regulation ordering officials to report their personal affairs - including marriages, property and whether family members live abroad - to disciplinary authorities.

The Sunday statement also said Wang is suspected of bribery, corruption and abuse of power, "as he took advantage of his work post to embezzle public property and receive huge amounts of money after providing 'help' for others, and offering property to get promotions".

"As a Party official, Wang lost his Communist faith and was greedy, and even after the 18th CPC National Congress in 2012 he still showed no sign of restraint," it said, adding that Wang is a typical example of duplicity.

Wang's alleged crimes have been sent to prosecutors for further investigation, it added.

Wang, a native of Tianshui, Gansu province, became Party chief of Shache in January 2015. Two months later he became a member of the Party Committee in Kashgar.
