BEIJING, Sept. 28 (Xinhua) -- Bo Xilai has been expelled from the Communist Party of China (CPC) and his public office, according to a decision made at a meeting of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee on Friday.

The meeting also decided to transfer Bo's suspected law violations and relevant clues to judicial organs.

The decisions were made after the meeting deliberating and adopting an investigation report on Bo's severe disciplinary violations submitted by the CPC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI).

At a meeting held on April 10, members of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee were briefed on the investigation into the incident of former Chongqing vice mayor Wang Lijun's entering the U.S. Consulate General in Chengdu without permission as well as the reinvestigation into the suspected murder of British citizen Neil Heywood by Bogu Kailai, Bo' s wife.

Based on Bo's mistakes and responsibilities in the two cases and clues to his other discipline violations found in the probe of the two cases, the CPC Central committee decided to suspend Bo's membership in the CPC Central Committee Political Bureau and in the CPC Central Committee, and the CCDI filed the case for investigation.

Investigations found that Bo seriously violated the Party disciplines while heading the city of Dalian, Liaoning Province and the Ministry of Commerce as well as serving as a member of the CPC Central Committee Political Bureau and party chief of Chongqing Municipality.
