China’s longest-serving finance vice minister is under investigation for alleged corruption, two years after rumors of his misconduct surfaced.

Zhang Shaochun is being probed for “serious violations of party discipline and law” — a common euphemism for bribery, embezzlement and influence peddling — according to a joint statement released by China’s two top anti-graft bodies, the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) and the National Supervisory Commission.
