Ericsson Employee Probed for China Mobile Scandal
(Beijing) – An equipment procurement officer from Ericsson, the international mobile equipment supplier, was brought in for questioning to assist in the investigation of the ongoing China Mobile scandal in Southern China.
The investigation is related to corruption charges surrounding two high-ranking executives of China Mobile's Sichuan branches who stand accused of accepting bribes in exchange for equipment deals. Li Hua, the general manager of China Mobile's Sichuan branch, and Chen Binglan, the deputy general manager of China Mobile's Sichuan branch responsible for equipment and project procurement, have been placed under custody of the party's disciplinary agency.
Caixin learned from sources close to the situation that just after the corruption case of Li was exposed, the focus of investigation has since moved to Chen.
