BEIJING - Twenty-five suspects have been put under prosecutorial investigation following a deadly construction platform collapse last year in East China, the Supreme People's Procuratorate (SPP) announced Friday.

The 25 are suspected of dereliction of duty, abuse of power, or bribery, during the investigation into the case.

On Nov. 24, 2016, a platform for the construction of a cooling tower at a power plant collapsed in Fengcheng, Jiangxi Province, killing 73, injuring another two, and causing a direct economic loss of about 102 million yuan (15.48 million US dollars).
