BEIJING - Han Xuejian, a former senior official of the Communist Party of China (CPC) in Northeast China's Heilongjiang province, has been prosecuted for allegedly accepting bribes, the Supreme People's Procuratorate (SPP) said Monday.

Prosecutors in Liaoyuan city in Northeast Jilin province have informed Han, former member of the standing committee of the CPC Heilongjiang provincial committee and party chief of Daqing city, of his litigation rights and questioned him, according to an SPP statement.

The indictment said Han took advantage of his posts to seek benefits for others, accepting a huge amount in bribes.

The CPC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) announced in December 2014 that Han was under investigation for alleged violations of discipline and law.

He was expelled from the CPC and dismissed from public office in April 2015.
