The CPC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) launched an investigation into Song's violations and found he took advantage of his post to seek promotions and benefit businesses for others and extorted and accepted bribes, the CCDI said in a statement on Friday.

He was also found spending public funds for personal use and violated rules regarding holding concurrent posts and receiving payments, the statement said.

The statement accused him of violating the CPC's frugality code by using public spending to play golf as well as embezzlement and adultery.

The CCDI Standing Committee has reviewed the decision to expel Song from the CPC and the decision was approved by the CPC Central Committee, the statement said.

Upon approval by the State Council, Song will also be sacked from public posts and have his illegal gains seized.

His case will be transferred to judicial organs, the statement said.
