Chinese police officer who owns 192 houses sacked
Beijing: Authorities in south China`s Guangdong province have sacked a senior policeman who allegedly owns a staggering 192 houses.
Zhao Haibin, member of the the Communist Party of China (CPC) committee of Lufeng City`s Public Security Bureau, was dismissed Tuesday, an official told Xinhua.
An investigation team was established to carry out a thorough probe, said the official.
Zhao has denied he had 192 houses as reported by whistle-blowers.
He said these properties had been jointly developed by his brother and others, and all had later been sold out. Zhao claimed he was just a "supervisor" of the properties.
A string of officials have been targeted with the exposure of their scandals by whistle-blowers since last year as the ruling party vows to continue fighting corruption.
