Ji Jianye, the former mayor of Nanjing in Jiangsu province, is now being investigated by prosecutors and is suspected of taking bribes, according to a statement made by the Supreme People’s Procuratorate (SPP).
Initial investigation results show that Ji Jianye received numerous bribes and took advantage of others for his own benefit. He committed serious violations on top of those actions, although bribery is the major crime under investigation.
The investigation was decided upon after SPP review, and “coercive measures” will be imposed upon him, according to the statement.
