WUHAN - Three officials in Central China's Hubei province have been removed from both their government posts and the Communist Party of China.

Former party chief of the Ezhou municipal legislature Tu Weifa, former party chief of the Huangshi municipal legislature Zhu Zhonghua and Yu Hongxing, former deputy party chief of the Jingzhou municipal political advisory body, are suspected of serious disciplinary violations, the Hubei provincial commission for disciplinary inspection announced late on Thursday.

Their cases will be transferred to judicial authorities for handling.

Preliminary investigations found that the three abused their power to seek profits for others and took briberies, the commission said.
