BEIJING - Two senior Chinese officials have been removed from office for "serious discipline and law violations."

They are Zhu Mingguo, chair of the Guangdong Provincial Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, and Sui Fengfu, deputy head of the Standing Committee of the Heilongjiang Provincial People's Congress, which was confirmed Wednesday by the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee Organization Department.

The CPC disciplinary watchdog said on Friday that Zhu was put under investigation. Zhu had held the post of the official in charge of political and legal affairs of the CPC Chongqing Municipal Committee between 2002 and 2006.

Sui was announced to be under probe on Thursday. He was also Party chief of the Heilongjiang Provincial State-owned Farms Administrative Bureau. The northeastern province is China's biggest grain production base.
