Official dismissed over buying over-standard cars

Official dismissed over buying over-standard cars

Cao Fuzhong, Party secretary of Yiliang County in Zhaotong, SW China’s Yunnan Province, was officially removed from office as his alleged purchase frenzy of over-standard government cars has been confirmed, the local Party committee declared on Jan 16.
Cao was embroiled in a series of scandals last December, when a whistle-blower accused him in an online post of bulk-buying official cars in defiance of the relevant restrictions and selecting hostesses to serve the governmental banquets. He was then sarcastically dubbed “the most fearless secretary” by some netizens.
Yet an investigation conducted by the local discipline watchdog in early January demonstrated that the online allegation was partly true.
Cao had bought more than 10 foreign-branded vehicles which all exceeded the purchase standard, while other discipline violations proved non-existent.
All the over-standard cars have been ordered to be handed back or confiscated. Cao was deposed as the county Party secretary according to the decision made at the meeting of the organization department of the municipal Party committee of Zhaotong on Jan 16.
