Jiangxi deputy governor under investigation, govt says

Jiangxi deputy governor Yao Mugen is under investigation for suspected serious violations of discipline and the law, according to a statement posted Saturday on the website of the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection and the Ministry of Supervision. Yao, 57, was head of the southeastern province’s National Development and Reform Commission before assuming his current post in September 2011, Beijing News reported Sunday. Investigation by a team from the central government last year uncovered irregularities in several public construction projects in the province involving local officials and their relatives, the report said.
