Yin Jiaxu, former Party secretary and chairman of China’s state-owned defense corporation, China North Industries Group Corp (Norinco), is undergoing disciplinary review for suspected serious violations of discipline and the law, said Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) on Sunday on its official website.

During Yin’s term as head of the group from 2013 to 2018, a central inspection team said in October of 2015 that the group has been found for the weakened leadership of the Party, according to Capitalnews, the WeChat account run by Beijing Daily.

The central inspection team said that some senior officials in the group have been abusing their powers for personal gains, providing unjustified convenience for their spouses, children, and relatives to run businesses or enterprises, according to Capitalnews.

Born in 1956, he was the deputy general manager of China South Industries Group Co in 2002, and later served as the deputy general manager of Norinco in 2010, then as the chairman from 2013. Yin retired in 2018.
