On Dec. 4, Xiao Zhenmang, a former anti-corruption bureau chief in Guizhou province, was arrested by the prosecutor’s office. He was accused of trading in power and sex, irregularly interfering and meddling in the handling of cases, and accepting large amounts of money and property.
A few days ago, the Guizhou Qiandongnan State Procuratorate made an arrest decision for Xiao Zhenmeng on suspicion of accepting bribes.
Xiao Zhenmang was investigated in June this year and was double-opened on November 8. The website of the Guizhou Provincial Commission for Discipline Inspection informed that, after investigation, Xiao Zhenmang engaged in power and money transactions, using his power for personal gain, irregular intervention and meddling in the handling of cases, accepting large amounts of money and other things.
Public biography shows that Xiao Zhenmang, 58, a native of Zunyi, Guizhou Province, has long served in the Guizhou provincial procuratorial system, serving as a member of the party group of the Guizhou Provincial Procuratorate, deputy procurator general, director of the anti-corruption and bribery bureau, and a member of the procuratorial committee.
In March 2019, Xiao Zhenmang was transferred to serve at Guizhou Normal College and was investigated in June this year.
Currently, the authorities are conducting a major purge of the CCP’s political and legal system, and many serving or retired political and legal officials have been investigated. According to the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection, Xiao Zhenmeng’s fall is linked to his tenure in the procuratorial system.
