Another Zhou Yongkang associate may be under probe, paper says

Shen Dingcheng {沈定成}, vice president of PetroChina International Co. Ltd. and a former secretary of retired security czar Zhou Yongkang {周永康}, has not been heard from since the Lunar New Year holiday in early February, China Securities Journal reported over the weekend, citing people with knowledge of the matter. Shen and his wife were taken in for questioning by government authorities, the sources said. Three other officials who are currently under investigation in a widening anti-corruption crackdown — Li Hualin {李華林}, former secretary of the board of PetroChina Co. Ltd.; Ji Wenlin {冀文林}, former vice governor of Hainan province; and Guo Yongxiang {郭永祥}, former Sichuan vice governor — all had served as Zhou’s secretary in different periods of time, the report said.
