China investigates corruption investigator for corruption

Xi Jinping, General Secretary of the Communist Party of China ( A corruption inspector for China’s Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) is under investigation for corruption, the CCDI said Monday.

The anti-corruption watchdog published a one-line statement on its website that Cao Lixin was being investigated for violating discipline and laws, which usually means graft, China News reported.

President Xi Jinping’s anti-corruption campaign has led to the detention of senior government officials and executives, including several at the country’s largest oil and gas producer, state-owned PetroChina Co. Ltd.

In March, Shanghai-based Wison Engineering Services Co. disclosed in a statement issued to the Hong Kong Stock Exchange that its chairman was arrested by Chinese police for “alleged bribery activity.”

Jinping’s government has also imposed restraints on Chinese officials for the use of luxury foreign cars, celebrations and official dinners, and special privileges such as VIP membership cards and special traffic permits.
