Nanjing mayor under scrutiny for economic crimes, paper says

Ji Jianye, mayor of Nanjing, Jiangsu province, is being investigated by the Communist Party’s top disciplinary watchdog over economic crimes, People’s Daily reported Thursday. Officials in Nanjing were not surprised about the investigation into Ji because he spearheaded a widespread urban renovation program in Nanjing in the past few years, drawing public complaints about destruction of the city’s rich heritage. Ji is under the spotlight for making more than 20 million yuan (US$3.26 million) in illicit gains over the last few years, the report said.
