GUTIAN, Fujian - Chinese President Xi Jinping has called for serious reflection on the discipline and law violations by former Central Military Commission (CMC) Vice Chairman Xu Caihou.

Xu had confessed to taking bribes, Military prosecutors announced last Tuesday.

On Friday Xi, also general secretary of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee and CMC chairman, said people should "pay great attention" to and "seriously treat" the case of Xu.

Lessons learned from Xu's case deserve a profound reflection and the unfavorable influence of the case must be thoroughly cleared away, Xi said at a military political work conference held in a former revolutionary base in the township of Gutian, Shanghang County of southeastern Fujian Province, on Thursday and Friday.

Outstanding problems in the ideological and political development in military construction should be faced squarely, Xi said.

Prosecutors said investigation into the Xu's case has concluded and the filing of the case has begun.
