China’s Former Internet Tsar Caught in Anti-Graft Net
A prominent communist party official who previously headed the country’s powerful cyber security apparatus has been put under investigation for alleged corruption, according to a statement by the party’s top anti-graft agency on Tuesday.
Lu Wei, a deputy director of the party’s Publicity Department, is under investigation for “serious violations of party discipline,” a party euphemism for corruption, the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) said Tuesday. The statement didn’t elaborate on the nature or extent of his alleged irregularities.
