Former vice governor of south China's island province of Hainan, Tan Li, has been expelled from the Communist Party of China (CPC) following a corruption investigation.


The investigation by the CPC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) found Tan took advantage of his post to seek profits for others, accepted "a huge amount of bribes" and committed adultery.


Tan broke the "eight-point rule" that was introduced at the end of 2012 to rein in extravagance and excessive formality in the Party.


In addition to bribery, the investigation found he frequently engaged in lavish past times.


Also on Tuesday, the Supreme People's Procuratorate (SPP) announced it has decided to investigate Tan for taking bribes, adding that the top procuratorate has taken "compulsory measures" against him.


Compulsory measures may include issuing a warrant to compel a suspect to appear, bail pending trial, and residential surveillance.


The CCDI began its investigation into Tan in July.
