BEIJING, Nov. 28 (Xinhua) -- Zhang Yang, a member of the Central Military Commission (CMC), committed suicide at his home in Beijing on Nov. 23, after authorities launched an investigation into his links to two former senior military figures, Guo Boxiong and Xu Caihou, the CMC said Tuesday.
Zhang, a former member of the Communist Party of China Central Military Commission and former head of the CMC Political Work Department, hanged himself in his home.
The CMC decided to hold "talks" with Zhang to investigate his involvement in the cases of Guo and Xu, two corrupt former CMC vice chairmen, on Aug. 28, according to the CMC.
Investigators said that Zhang had seriously violated discipline and law. He was also suspected of offering and accepting bribes and holding a huge amount of property from unidentified sources.
