Senior Chinese sports official expelled

Beijing, Sep 24 (IANS) Xiao Tian, a senior sports official, has been expelled from the Communist Party of China (CPC) and removed from public office for violating the party code of conduct, media reported.

Approved by the CPC Central Committee, the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) launched an investigation into Xiao and found he was in “serious breaches of discipline and law”, the CCDI said in a statement on Thursday.

Xiao is the former deputy director of China’s General Administration of Sport.

It accused him of violating CPC rules by interfering with and stalling the investigation and hiding funds and property by colluding with others, reported Xinhua citing the statement.

The probe also found that Xiao exploited his position to help his family members in business, seek profits for others in promotion of officials and business operations and took bribes, said the CCDI.

As a senior Party official, Xiao showed no intention of disciplining himself and stopping his wrongdoings even after the 18th CPC National Congress in late 2012 when the new leadership launched the anti-corruption campaign, the statement said.
