The assistant minister of public security and director of the Economic Criminal Investigation Bureau, Zheng Shaodong, has been detained by the Communist Party’s Central Commission for Discipline Inspection for alleged links with former Gome chairman Huang Guangyu, the South China Morning Post said, citing a report in Caijing magazine. Details of the investigation have not been made public, but the report said that the action was linked to Neptune Group investor Lin Chui, who was arrested last month for laundering money for Huang and for trying to help Huang’s wife flee the country. Huang, who founded electronics retail giant Gome, is under investigation for economic crimes. Zheng originally gained fame for his arrest of Hong Kong gangster Cheung Tse-keung and for resolving several high-profile cases, including the 1995 robbery of the Macau branch of the Bank of China.
