Former Tianjin Port chairman arrested for corruption

China’s Central Commission for Discipline Inspection has announced that it has detained Zhang Lili, former chairman of Tianjin Port Group, as part of a series of corruption investigations.

According to the commission, Zhang was involved in a number of illegal activities including taking bribes and selling official positions.

Zhang was sacked as chairman of Tianjin Port Group along with Zheng Qingyue, former president of Tianjin Port Group, by authorities in 2015 for dereliction of duty after the huge chemical blasts at the port’s warehousing area which caused the deaths of 139 people and massive damage to the port area.

She later took a position at the administration board of Tianjin Port’s Bonded Zone before her arrest.
