The former publisher of a major state-owned newspaper is under investigation for “serious violations of discipline and law” — a euphemism for corruption, a Beijing corruption watchdog announced Monday.

Dai Zigeng, vice chairman at state-owned financing platform Beijing Cultural Investment Development Group and a deputy secretary of the company's Communist Party committee, was once head of the Beijing News, an outlet known for investigative journalism.

He had also previously worked at the Communist Party-owned newspaper Guangming Daily for nearly 20 years, and only joined the investment platform in 2017.

The Beijing municipal supervisory commission didn’t offer any further details on the investigation into Dai. It’s unclear if the investigation is related to Dai’s previous roles.
