Inquiry into Senior Judge 'Tied to 420 Mln Yuan Coal Mine Lawsuit'
(Beijing) – One of the country's top judges is being investigated by the Communist Party's graft watchdog, and a person with knowledge of the matter say the scandal is linked to interference in a 420 million yuan lawsuit over shares in a coal mine.
The Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) said on July 12 it is investigating Xi Xiaoming, a 61-year-old judge in the Supreme People's Court, for "serious violation of the law and discipline," the party's preferred term for corruption. Xi is one of the nine vice presidents of the country's top court, making him one of China's most senior judges.
