HONG KONG (REUTERS) - A former executive of state-owned China Resources (Holdings) Co. Ltd, a conglomerate of energy, land and consumer businesses in mainland China and Hong Kong, is under investigation, China's top anti-corruption body said.
Mr Wang Shuaiting, vice chairman of China Travel Service (Holding) Hong Kong, is suspected of serious disciplinary violations - Beijing's official jargon for graft - during his tenure at China Resources, the China Central Discipline Inspection Commission said in a one-line statement on its website (www.ccdi.gov.cn).
The probe follows a similar investigation into Mr Song Lin, the ex-chairman of China Resources who has been sacked from his post, according state media.
