BEIJING, Jan. 15 (Xinhua) -- Liu Zheng, deputy head of the People's Liberation Army's (PLA) General Logistics Department is under investigation for "suspected legal violations," the PLA announced Thursday.

Liu was put under investigation in November by the military procuratorate, according to a report published on the official PLA website, which listed 16 senior officers -- of corps level and above -- as subjects of investigation in 2014.

Liu is not the first deputy head of the PLA General Logistics Department to be in the firing line. Previously, Gu Junshan was charged with embezzlement, bribery, misuse of state funds and abuse of power.

In addition, Yu Daqing, deputy political commissar of the Second Artillery Force; and Fan Changmi, deputy political commissar of the Lanzhou Military Area Command; have also been under investigation since December, according to the report.

The report also included other names that had been released before, including former vice chairman of the Central Military Commission Xu Caihou; and Yang Jinshan, former deputy commander of the Chengdu Military Area Command.
