25 people are under investigation for 2016 E China construction platform collapse
A total of 25 people are under investigation for their alleged responsibilities in last year’s construction platform collapse in east China's Jiangxi Province that left 73 people dead, the Supreme People's Procuratorate (SPP) said on Friday.
Those individuals are being investigated for suspicion of corruption, dereliction of duty and abuse of power.
On November 24, 2016, a platform being constructed at a power plant construction site in Fengcheng, Jiangxi Province, collapsed, killing 73 and causing a direct economic loss of about 102 million yuan (15.6 million US dollars).
The suspects have been put under criminal coercive measures, according to the SPP.
In China, criminal coercive measures may include summons by force, bail, residential surveillance, detention or arrest.
