Chinese prosecutors have filed separate lawsuits against three former senior officials -- Ling Zhengce, Chen Chuanping and Sun Hongzhi.

All are accused of accepting bribes and other graft-related crimes, the Supreme People's Procuratorate said Sunday.

Ling, former vice chairman of the Shanxi Provincial Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, is indicted for seeking benefits for others and illegally accepting large amounts of money and other goods by taking advantage of official posts during his time in Shanxi, according Changzhou City People's Procuratorate in east China's Jiangsu Province.

Chen, former Party chief of Taiyuan, capital of Shanxi, took advantage of official posts to seek benefits for others and illegally accept money and other goods, and he abused his power and caused especially great losses to the country when he served as head of a state-owned steel group in Taiyuan, the Xuzhou City People's Procuratorate, also in Jiangsu, said in the indictment.

Sun, former vice minister of the State Administration for Industry & Commerce, took advantage of his official posts to seek benefits for others and illegally accept huge amount of money and other goods, Tai'an city People's Procuratorate in Shandong Province said in a statement.

Sun is also charged with embezzling public assets, and his family's wealth and expenditure far exceed his legitimate income, and he can not explain the source of the money, according to the statement.
