China discipline warning after Bo Xilai expelled
China’s official newsagency Xinhua has warned that no-one, no matter what rank, will be immune fromCommunist Party discipline.
Mr Bo, the ex-Communist Party leader in the city of Chongqing,is accused of abuse of power and corruption.
His wife was given a suspended death sentence for murdering a UKnational.
In August, Gu Kailai was found guilty of murdering Britishbusinessman Neil Heywood in November 2011.
The scandal has overshadowed the party congress that willoversee China’s change of leadership, which is expected to see Xi Jinpingreplace Hu Jintao as president. It will begin on 8 November, state media haveannounced.
Before the scandal broke, 63-year-old Mr Bo had been a primecandidate for a top post.
Reporting an official statement from a party leaders’ meeting asit announced the decision, the state news agency, Xinhua, said the party mustrecognise the "perennial, complex and arduous nature of theanti-corruption fight".
The battle against corruption should be given a more prominent placeon its agenda, Xinhua reports, "leaving no room for corrupt figures tohide within the party".
The statement urged "party organisations at alllevels" to take heed of the "negative example" of the Bo Xilaicase.
The BBC’s Martin Patience, in Beijing, says theBo Xilai announcement ends months of speculation over the fate of a man who wasonce one of China’s most powerful politicians.
Our correspondent says it is clear China’s leaders wanted to tryto end the damaging revelations, with the once-in-a-decade leadership changelooming.
He says Mr Bo’s career is over and he will almost certainlyspend time in jail.
Mr Bo has not been seen in public sincemid-March, shortly after the scandal erupted and it was announced he was underinvestigation. He was suspended from his party posts in April.
Xinhua said Mr Bo stood accused of corruption, abuse of power,bribe-taking and improper relations with women.
The statement carried by Xinhua said Mr Bo "took advantageof his office to seek profits for others and received huge bribes personallyand through his family".
It added: "Bo’s behaviour brought serious consequences,badly undermined the reputation of the party and the country, created verynegative impact at home and abroad and significantly damaged the cause of theparty and people."
Xinhua said the violations included Mr Bo’s time as an officialin Dalian and Liaoning provinces, and as minister of commerce.
"Bo had affairs and maintained improper sexualrelationships with a number of women," the statement added.
Xinhua said Mr Bo had been expelled from the party and the elitedecision-making Politburo and Central Committee as he had "abused hispower, made severe mistakes and bore major responsibility in the Wang Lijunincident and the intentional homicide case of [Gu Kailai]".
Wang Lijun was Chongqing’s former police chief who was sentencedto 15 years in jail for ’’bending the law, defection, abuse of power andbribetaking" in the Neil Heywood case.
