As China’s top leaders prepared this week to unveil their economic agenda for the next decade in Beijing, the nation’s security minister was paying unannounced, after-dark visits to the city’s subway stations.
A Chinese court on Oct. 25 will announce its decision on former Politburo member Bo Xilai’s appeal of his life sentence for corruption, abuse of power and bribery, the court said on its website yesterday.
Ousted Politburo member Bo Xilai was sentenced to life in prison for corruption, bringing an end to a crisis that roiled China’s Communist Party as the country’s leaders prepare to lay out an economic reform agenda.
Chinese Communist Party leaders agreed to investigate retired Politburo Standing Committee member Zhou Yongkang on corruption allegations, the South China Morning Post reported, citing people it didn’t identify.
Zhou Yongkang, China’s top internal security official, met with “model” police officers from around the nation in Beijing today together with President Hu Jintao, Premier Wen Jiabao and Vice President Xi Jinping, the official Xinhua News Agency reported.
China’s corruption watchdog opened a probe into the director of the state-owned assets overseer, pursuing the highest profile official since Xi Jinping took over the Communist Party last year with a pledge to fight graft.
