BEIJING -- Wang Min, a former senior official in Shandong province, has been expelled from the Communist Party of China (CPC) and dismissed from public office after a graft investigation.

Wang was a former Standing Committee member of the CPC Shandong Provincial Committee and party chief of Jinan city, capital of the East China province. He was also an alternate member of the CPC Central Committee.

The CPC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection issued a statement on Tuesday announcing that it had found Wang took advantage of his posts to seek benefits for businesses of his relatives and friends, violating Party rules and codes of conduct.

Wang was also found to have taken advantage of his posts to seek profits for others and accepted huge bribes in return for favor in selection of officials and enterprise operation.

The statement said that his "vile" wrongdoing continued after the 18th National Congress of the CPC in late 2012, and his case has been transferred to judiciary. Wang's expulsion from the Party will be further endorsed by a future plenum of the CPC Central Committee.

Wang has been under investigation since December.
