A senior Chinese official arrested on suspicion of corruption is reportedly the brother of a former top presidential aide, Reuters reported, citing local media. Ling Zhengce, deputy head of the Shanxi branch of a parliamentary advisory body, is being probed for suspected “serious discipline and law violations”, the Communist Party’s anti-graft body said, using a euphemism that usually refers to corruption. Ling Zhengce is the elder brother of Ling Jihua, a former senior aide to former president Hu Jintao, several previous reports in Chinese media have said. Ling Jihua was demoted in September 2012 after sources said his son was involved in a deadly crash involving a luxury sports car.
