China’s Central Commission for Discipline Inspection has announced that it has detained Yu Rumin, former chairman of Tianjin Port Group, for corruption investigations.
Yu served as chief director of Tianjin Port Authority from 2002 to 2004 and chairman of Tianjin Port from 2004 to 2013 before his retirement.
Yu is alleged to have formed a corruption interest chain within the port group via setting up his own cliques. Several other former and current officials of Tianjin Port have also been detained in the corruption case.
The discipline inspection authorities are also investigating corruption cases at Rizhao Port, and detained the port’s former president Du Chuanzhi in December 2016 and current vice president Kong Xianlei in March 2017.
