Purges ahead of party congress begin
Fu Zhenghua, a former senior cadre, was expelled from the Communist Party. He served as Minister of Justice from 2018 to 2020. Before that, he served as Vice Minister of Public Security and thus Chief of Intelligence. Fu had been under investigation for disciplinary violations since October (China.Table reported). As in other recent cases, the hunter became the hunted: in 2013, on Xi Jinping's behalf, he led the corruption investigation against Zhou Yongkang, the previously all-powerful security chief. Fu has always been particularly strict in investigating government critics, lawyers and activists.
