Li Yihuang, former vice governor of east China's Jiangxi Province, has been expelled from the Communist Party of China and public office for multiple offences, including "taking a huge amount of bribes," the CPC anti-graft body announced on Thursday.

Li's expulsion from the CPC has been approved by the CPC Central Committee, while the National Supervisory Commission has removed him from public office, according to the CPC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection.

Li was found in serious violation of the Party's political code of conduct and rules, including "forming a clique" and "twisting political guidance in personnel selection and promotion," said the CCDI in a statement.

The CCDI said that Li had used public funds to play golf and occupied a villa that should have been used by experts who work for state-owned enterprises.

Other offences include taking advantage of his posts to seek profits for his relatives' business, and intervening in enterprises' decision-making, according to the statement.

"Even after the 18th CPC National Congress, he still showed no sign of restraint and should be harshly punished," said the statement.

Li's illegal gains will be confiscated and his case transferred to the judiciary.
