Graphic: Taking Inventory of Bagged 'Tigers'
(Beijing) -- On June 30, one day before the Communist Party celebrates its 93rd anniversary, the party's top policymaking body decided to expel Xu Caihou, a former vice chairman of the Central Military Commission (CMC), for corruption. Xu is the highest ranking military official to be put under investigation in the past three decades.
On the same day, the party also ousted three other figures who had earlier been detained so they could be investigated, namely Jiang Jiemin, former head of the country's state asset regulator; Li Dongsheng, former vice minister of public security; and Wang Yongchun, former deputy general manager of China National Petroleum Corp.
