(Beijing) – A November 27 statement by the Communist Party's anti-corruption watchdog confirmed that the deputy governor of Hubei Province, Guo Youming, was being investigated for graft.
Three days later, Guo was removed from his post, becoming the 13th official with the rank of deputy minister or higher to fall from grace over corruption since the party's 18th National Congress in November 2012.
