Head of Construction Firm Ensnared in Chengdu Scandal
The scandal involving a former Chengdu mayor has spread to the business sector, as Zhang Jun, chairman of state-owned Chengdu Jiangong Group (CDJG), is being investigated by Communist Party discipline officials.
Zhang has not been seen in public since December 31, spurring several local banks to start checking loans they made to his company.
The investigation into Zhang is related to Li Chuncheng, the former mayor of Chengdu and an alternate to the party's 18th Central Committee, sources close to the matter said.
