Everbright ex-Chairman Tang Shuangning expelled from China’s Communist Party – CCDI

SHANGHAI (Reuters) – Tang Shuangning, former party chief and chairman of state-owned financial conglomerate China Everbright Group, has been expelled from the Communist Party for serious violations of discipline and the law, according to China’s anti-graft watchdog.

Tang, who had been reported under probe in July, was found taking publications with severe political issues inbound and taking bribes, the Party’s Central Commission for Discipline Inspection said in a statement on Saturday.
