China’s deputy public security minister, is being investigated by the country’s anti-graft body for alleged corruption. China’s Central Commission for Discipline Inspection said that Sun Lijun was being investigated for “serious violations of discipline and the law”. The Agency did not say what the violations were. It also did not say whether Sun financially benefitted from these violations. Sun was appointed director of the Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan office under the ministry of public security in December 2017.
Sun, 51, was last seen in early March in Wuhan, the former centre of the COVID-19 pandemic, the official People’s Public Security Daily reported. On March 7, Sun attended an oath ceremony of two female police officers after personally recommending them for party membership, saying he was touched by their hard work during the lockdown.
