According to sohuxiaobao blog, the Central Committee for Discipline Inspection recently submitted to the central Party leaders the fourth report on Shanghai corruption Investigation.

The report said the committee found 1322 inappropriate accounts (including 355 foreign-currency accounts), with savings amounting to 98,643 million yuan. Those accounts were owned by some Shanghai party officials, government officials, and their spouses and relatives, and were under pseudonyms.

The report said Chen Liangyu, together with his spouse and relatives, owned 53 accounts (9 of them are foreign-currency accounts), which were also under pseudonyms. Chen’s deposits in those accounts were as much as 274.1 million yuan.

The report said Chen Liangyu and his spouse and relatives owned nine houses and three companies in Shanghai. They also held 25 passports, 17 of them were under pseudonyms. The committee also found 19 flight tickets to Europe, Australia, and other countries. Those business-class tickets were for whole year travel.

The report also said Chen Liangyu had improper relationships with 11 women (some of them were married) in Shanghai, Hangzhou, Nanjing, Nantong, and other cities. Between September of 2001 and October of 2002, Chen was sued four times for swindles and rapes. Chen privately settled those cases with economic compensations (as much as 500,000 yuan), job offers, and project contracts.
