BEIJING (AP) — China has announced an investigation into the head of a commission that oversees the country's state-owned companies, in the country's latest high-profile corruption case.
The Ministry of Supervision said in a brief statement Sunday that Jiang Jiemin, director of the Cabinet's Assets Supervision and Administration Commission, is being investigated over suspected serious disciplinary violations. This is a vague term that usually refers to corruption.
Jiang was previously chairman of the country's biggest oil company, China National Petroleum Corp. In recent days, the Assets Supervision and Administration Commission announced similar disciplinary investigations into four executives at that company.
