BEIJING, June 19 -- Si Xinliang, a former senior political advisor in east China's Zhejiang Province, has been expelled from the Communist Party of China (CPC).

Si, formerly vice chairman of the Zhejiang provincial committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, was found taking advantage of his post to seek profits for others and accepted a huge bribe, according to a statement from the CPC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI).

He was also caught accepting monetary gifts, playing golf at the expense of others and committing adultery, the statement said.

Si's case has been handed over to prosecutors.

The CCDI announced in February that it was investigating Si. The CCDI accused Si of "serious violations with a vile nature" in Friday's statement.

As a senior Party official, Si showed no intention of disciplining himself and stopping his wrongdoings even after the 18th CPC National Congress in late 2012 when the new leadership launched the anti-corruption campaign, the statement said.

He had tried to interfere with and stall the investigation by colluding with his wife and several persons of interest, as well as hiding funds and property, it added.

Following the CCDI statement, the Supreme People's Procuratorate announced that it has opened a criminal investigation into Si for alleged bribe-taking and placed him under "coercive measures", which, according to the Criminal Procedure Law, may include summons by force, bail, residential surveillance, detention and arrest.
