Beijing legislature approves coercive measures against deputy

BEIJING, Feb. 13 (Xinhua) -- Beijing's legislature on Friday approved a proposal from the People's Liberation Army (PLA) for "coercive measures" against a major general on corruption charges.

The 14th standing committee of the Beijing Municipal People's Congress made the approval at a meeting Friday.

According to a proposal submitted to Beijing's legislature by the military procuratorate of the PLA General Staff Headquarters, Major General Liu Hongjie who was in charge of logistic support, was suspected of graft.

The military procuratorate said it planned to take coercive measures against Liu, who was suspected of having abused his power and taken bribes in 2013.

It had to get approval from the Beijing municipal legislature before taking action because Liu is one of its deputies.

Under China's criminal procedure law, coercive measures include summons by force, bail, residential surveillance, detention and arrest.
