The division chief at the China Securities Regulatory Commission’s department of public offering supervision, Li Zhiling, was fired and detained by police investigating abuses of power on Saturday after her spouse was found to have illegally traded shares, South China Morning Post reported, citing a statement from the commission.

The Post cited an unnamed source as saying Li’s division was regarded as powerful since firms seeking share placements needed its approval before raising fresh capital.
