BEIJING - A former senior official and a former senior executive of a major state-owned enterprise have been expelled from the Communist Party of China (CPC) for "serious violations of discipline and the law," said China's top anti-graft body on Monday.

The Central Commission for Discipline Inspection said in a statement that Sun Hongzhi, vice minister of the State Administration for Industry & Commerce, and Liao Yongyuan, former general manager with China National Petroleum Corporation, have been expelled from CPC following graft investigations.

It accused the two of accepting huge amount of bribes, seeking profits for others and committing adultery.
