BEIJING - Wang Min, former Communist Party of China (CPC) chief of northeast China's Liaoning Province and a senior national legislator, is under investigation on suspicion of accepting bribes.

The Supreme People's Procuratorate announced on Thursday that it has decided to take "coercive measures" against Wang. The investigation is under way.

According to Chinese law, "coercive measures" may include summons by force, bail, residential surveillance, detention or arrest.

The CPC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection said Wednesday that Wang has been expelled from the Party and dismissed from public office for serious breach of CPC discipline.
