Reuters reported that a former general manager of Jiangxi Copper Co, one of China’s biggest copper producers, has been expelled from the ruling Communist Party and public office for grave violations of discipline and law. Mr Wu Yuneng, a 20 year veteran of state-run Jiangxi Copper and a well-known figure in China’s copper industry, was found to have illegally accepted gifts, used public funds to play golf and used company vehicles for personal travel, according to a statement from the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection late on Friday.

The 57 year-old Mr Wu, who joined Jiangxi Copper in 1998, rose through the ranks to became general manager in January 2018, only to abruptly leave the company six months later.

An investigation by the Jiangxi branch of the CCDI also found Wu had accepted dinner invitations that could affect the fair execution of official duties, according to the statement, which called his actions “seriously irresponsible” and an abuse of power. It added that Mr Wu is also suspected of having taken bribes.
