China Corruption Blotter (August 8, 2014)

Yang Senlin, vice general secretary of the Shanxi provincial Commission for Discipline Inspection, was investigated for discipline violations. Yang was said to be linked to Jin Daoming, former vice director of Shanxi People’s Congress Standing Committee, who was placed under investigation in February. Yang and Jin have covered up tax evasion by Zhang Xinming, chairman of Shanxi Jinye Coal & Coking Group, sources said.

Shi Yong, former head of Jiuquan City Urban Construction Bureau, received a death sentence with two years’ reprieve for taking $8 million in bribes to help companies win project bids and obtain government approval. Shi’s wife Ru Xiuqin was sentenced to three years in jail for accepting a villa together with Shi.

Wu Changshun, director of Tianjin municipality’s Public Security Bureau, has been removed from his position and placed under corruption investigation. Sources said Wu was investigated for taking a huge amount of bribes related to urban infrastructure building. 

Ma Linguo, former general manager of the Yinchuan branch of the State Grid Ningxia Electric Power Company, is being investigated by prosecutors for taking bribes and embezzling public funds.

Tang Wenbiao, former vice president of Zhanjiang City Intermediate People’s Court in Guangdong provinces, has been charged with taking bribes worth $403,766 in return to settle lawsuits in favor of the bribe-givers. Tang was also accused of keeping a mistress in violation of party discipline.
