GUANGZHOU, Jan. 29 (Xinhua) -- An official in south China's Guangdong Province has been expelled from the Communist Party of China (CPC) for violating CPC discipline and accepting large bribes.
Lu Yingming, deputy director of the provincial land and resources department, is suspected to have both abused his power for personal gain and accepted large bribes in separate incidents, sources from the provincial disciplinary inspection commission said on Tuesday.
Authorities also proposed the expulsion of Lu from public service, which has been submitted to the provincial government for approval.
Lu's case has been transferred to judicial authorities.
Lu worked as deputy director of the provincial water resources department from 2001 to 2012 before being transferred to his post in the land and resources department.
