BEIJING - Yang Luyu, former mayor of Jinan City in east China's Shandong Province, has been expelled from the Communist Party of China (CPC) and removed from public office for multiple violations.

The CPC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) announced on Thursday that Yang, also former vice head of the CPC Jinan municipal committee, was found to have been involved in corruption and other violations of the Party's rules.

Upon the approval of the CPC Central Committee, the CCDI carried out an investigation into Yang's case.

The probe found that Yang violated the Party's political code of conduct and resisted the Party's investigation.

It found that the former mayor attended banquets in violation of the Party's "eight-point rules" and did not report personal information required by relevant authorities, the CCDI said in a statement.

The statement said that Yang has taken advantage of his position and accepted gifts and money in return for benefits for others when selecting officials. Yang was also found to have been involved in the trade of power and money for sex and other violations.

The statement said that as a senior official of the CPC, Yang has lost his beliefs, violated the Party's code of conduct in a serious manner and did not cease his violations after the CPC 18th National Congress.

The CPC Central Committee has approved his expulsion from the Party. The State Council has approved his removal from office.

His illegal gains should be confiscated and the case should be transferred to judicial organs for investigation into alleged crimes, the statement said.
