A former senior Communist Party of China official in Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region is expected to be prosecuted on corruption charges, the regional procuratorate said Tuesday.

Bai Zhiming, former deputy secretary-general of the Party's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Regional Committee, was detained on Nov. 1 last year after the local discipline inspection authority found that he had illegally taken money and goods worth up to 39.54 million yuan (6 million U.S. dollars) from 2002 to 2009.

Bai acquired the assets, which included bribes, embezzled money, public funds and goods, when he served in Party and administrative posts, an official with the procuratorate told Xinhua.

Bai, born in 1954, was stripped of his Party and administrative posts on the day of his arrest.

A total of 1,105 government officials in Inner Mongolia were penalized for corruption or violation of Party discipline last year after discipline watchdogs in the region completed investigations into 1,236 cases, said Zhang Li, Party chief of the region's discipline inspection commission, on Sunday.

Investigators retrieved a total of 90.38 million yuan involved in the cases.
