Yang was removed from his position in May after China’s top anti-graft body, the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI), launched an investigation over an alleged violation of Communist Party rules. He was expelled from the Party and dismissed from public office on August 1st.
The former top banking regulator has been put under “coercive measures” which may include summons by force, bail, residential surveillance, detention and arrest, China’s Xinhua news agency reported.
The CCDI said that Yang seriously violated the party’s code of conduct, disrupted the order of the financial market and harmed the image of the banking regulatory body.
