The head of discipline inspection group at China Shipbuilding Industry Corporation (CSIC) is being investigated for alleged corrupt practices, according to China’s State-owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission (SASAC).

SASAC published a brief statement on its website that Liu Changhong has been called in by the authorities to help with investigation over “serious violations of discipline”, a phrase used by Chinese authorities to mean corruption.

Liu joined CSIC in 2011, and was previously a deputy director of SASAC.

An ongoing nationwide anti-corruption crusade led by Chinese president Xi Jinping has implicated several senior officials in state-owned enterprises including shipbuilding and shipping firms.

Back in 2015, China’s anti-corruption inspection team opened its probe into CSIC on corrupt practices.
