Hard-hitting Caijing editor removed from post, paper says

One of China’s most famous journalists, Luo Changping, has been removed from his post as deputy editor of current affairs magazine Caijing and transferred to the publication’s research institute, the South China Morning Post reported on Wednesday, citing unidentified sources. In December last year, Luo exposed on his Weibo account that Liu Tiannan, then the deputy minister of the National Development and Reform Commission, had taken bribes, faked his master’s degree and had extramarital affairs, the report said, adding that Luo’s charges eventually led to the sacking of Liu in May. Caijing’s parent company, SEEC Media Group, announced Luo’s transfer as part of a normal staff reshuffle during a meeting Tuesday afternoon, a reporter of the publication was quoted as saying.
