China's anti-graft campaign: 2nd 'tiger' falls in 2018
Ji Xiangqi, vice governor of east China's Shandong Province, is under investigation for suspected "severe disciplinary violations," the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) of the Communist Party of China (CPC) announced Thursday.
Born in 1960, Ji has served in the post since 2013 and became the second "tiger" taken down in the new year.
The CCDI, the country's anti-graft authority, has been ousting corrupt officials ranging from low-level "flies" to high-ranking "tigers" since late 2012.
On Wednesday, the CCDI announced that Feng Xinzhu, vice governor of northwest China's Shaanxi Province, is under investigation for "severe disciplinary violations."
