Former Tianjin Port Group chairman indicted by court

Tianjin People’s Procuratorate has indicted Yu Rumin, former chairman of Tianjin Port Group, for corruption activities.

Yu will be charged for taking around RMB12.87m ($1.88m) of bribes in total between 2001 and 2015 as well as abuse of power.

Tianjin Port Group has been involved in series of anti-corruption crackdowns in the past few years.

Last October, four senior officials at Tianjin Port Group were detained by authorities for corruption investigations.

Zhang Lili, another former chairman of the port after Yu, was also arrested for corruption in 2017.
