Four senior officials at Tianjin Port under investigation for corruption

Four senior officials at Tianjin Port in China have been detained by the local supervisory authorities for corruption investigations.

The four officials include Tianjin Port Group’s vice president Zhao Mingkui, chief party secretary Zhang Youming, and two general managers of two affiliate companies of the port.

The detention comes after central anti-corruption authorities completed an inspection at the port group.

The top management of Tianjin Port Group has been constantly changing over past few years. Zhang Lili, former chairman of Tianjin Port, was arrested last year for corruption, while the port’s former president Zheng Qingyue was sacked for dereliction of duty after the huge chemical blast at the port’s warehousing area, and Yu Rumin, the former chairman of the port from 2004 to 2013, was also arrested last year for corruption investigations.
