    China's Supreme People's Procuratorate brought corruption charges against former top executives of PetroChina oil and gas company and FAW carmaker as well as against ex-vice governor of southeastern Fujian province, local media reported Wednesday.

    BEIJING, (Sputnik) — Liao Yongyuan, former deputy chairman of PetroChina, is accused of large-scale corruption and power abuse on the grounds that his spending far outweighed his official income, according to the Xinhua news agency.

    Xu Jianyi, ex-chairman of China's FAW Group, and Xu Gang, former Fujian deputy governor, are charged with large-scale bribery and malfeasance in office, the media outlet added.

    In March 2015, the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection, the Chinese Communist Party's internal watchdog, launched a probe against PetroChina and FAW top officials over what it claimed was serious violations of law and party discipline.
