Shanghai’s Top Prosecutor Investigated for Graft
Shanghai’s top prosecutor has been placed under investigation by the country’s graft busters, making him the latest high-ranking official to fall from grace amid a sweeping crackdown on corruption in law enforcement and the judiciary.
Chief Procurator Zhang Bencai is being investigated for “suspected serious violations of (Communist Party) discipline and law,” a phrase that usually refers to corruption, according to a one-line statement (link in Chinese) published Wednesday by the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI). No details about the allegations were provided.
