Following an examination by the National Commission of Supervision and the CPC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection, the sentence was imposed with the CPC Central Committee’s blessing.
Zhang, who was once on the Party Committee for the administration, was the subject of an inquiry, and it was discovered that he had broken applicable Party rules by accepting money and gifts and by attending banquets that would have affected his objectivity while carrying out his official responsibilities.
Zhang was judged to have neglected to disclose personal concerns in line with rules and regulations and to have exploited his position to promote the interests of others in the recruitment and selection of officials.
The probe also revealed that he had a gambling problem, used his influence to obtain advantages for others, including job promotions and project contracts, and received substantial sums of cash and gifts in exchange.
According to the statement, Zhang’s case will be sent to prosecutors for evaluation and legal prosecution processes.
