BEIJING, July 6 (Xinhua) -- Tian Xueren, former vice governor of northeast China's Jilin province, was expelled from the Communist Party of China (CPC) and dismissed from all his posts for "severe disciplinary and law violations," said the Party's disciplinary watchdog on Friday.

Tian, who was also Party chief and board chairman of the Bank of Jilin, was found to have used his position to seek profits for others and taking "a huge amount of bribes and cash gifts," the CPC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection said in a statement.

His illegal gains have been confiscated and the case will be referred to prosecutors, according to the statement.
