Putuo District vice director sacked over corruption

Chen Meng, vice director of Putuo District, was sacked for accepting bribes, city authorities announced this morning. Judicial investigation is now under way to uncover the crime of Chen, a 49-year-old Jiangsu Province native, who was promoted as vice director of Putuo District only in February. Chen allegedly accepted a large amount of money from others and helped them to obtain construction contracts while he was vice mayor of Songjiang District. Last year, Cai Zhiqiang, former director of Putuo District, was sentenced to 14 years in prison for accepting 2.84 million yuan (US$444,703) in bribes, while Yin Kunneng, former office director of the Putuo District government, received a jail term of 11 years for taking 720,000 yuan in bribes.
