China’s Sun Hongzhi under investigation for graft

BEIJING: Sun Hongzhi, deputy head of China’s business regulators, the State Administration for Industry and Commerce is under investigation for suspected corruption.

Sun is suspected of serious violations of party discipline and law and was being investigated by the ruling Communist Party’s anti graft watchdog using the usual euphemism for graft.

The State Administration for Industry and Commerce also has an anti-trust role, along with at least two other government departments, and was involved in questioning Microsoft Corporation this year on the compatibility of its Windows operating system and Office software suite.

Further Sun joined the body in 2011, having been moved there from previous jobs in the northeastern province of Jilin, where he held coal and agricultural roles, according to his biography.
