BEIJING - Yang Baohua, a former senior political advisor of Central China's Hunan province, had been stripped of Party membership for serious discipline and law violation, the discipline watchdog of the Communist Party of China (CPC) said Tuesday.

The CPC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) said in a statement that Yang was found to have taken advantage of his position to seek interests for others, taken huge bribes and committed adultery.

Yang was former vice chairman of the Hunan Provincial Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference.

The CCDI said Yang's case has been transferred to judiciary for alleged infringement of law.
