Shanghai Appoints Acting Top Prosecutor After Graft Probe Topples Previous Chief
Shanghai appointed a temporary top city prosecutor on Thursday, filling a position that’s been vacant since a graft probe toppled the previous chief in June.
Chen Yong, 58, was named acting chief of the Shanghai People’s Procuratorate and appointed its permanent deputy chief, after being chosen as the body’s top Communist Party official last week.
The chief prosecutor and procuratorate party leader jobs were empty for about a month, since corruption watchdogs announced they were investigating Zhang Bencai without providing details on what the former chief is suspected of doing.
