Property-hoarding community official suspended


08:59, November 28, 2012

SHENZHEN, Nov. 27 (Xinhua) -- An official of a neighborhood community in south China's Guangdong Province was suspended from duty on Tuesday after Internet users' reports of his huge property portfolio triggered public outrage.

Zhou Weisi, deputy head of Nanlian Community Workstation, a subordinate of Longgang District Neighborhood Community in Shenzhen City of Guangdong, was outed as allegedly owning property worth at least two billion yuan (321,000 U.S. dollars), far more than could be afforded on the income of an ordinary official.

The tip-off said Zhou has more than 80 houses, villas, factories and mansions, more than 20 luxury cars and a high-end hotel. It also mentioned that he illegally occupied and sold land through his position and offered bribes to local government.

The supervisory bureau of Longgang District launched an investigation into the issue on Tuesday.

Zhou, who is also the vice chairman of a joint-stock company and chairman of another trade and development company, said his property was accumulated by his business.
