Behind the Scenes in China

Fourth top aide of ex-security tsar Zhou Yongkang probed after being 'snatched by authorities'
A former secretary of ex-security tsar Zhou Yongkang is reportedly under investigation, joining three other occupants of the role who are already being probed for graft.

Shen Dingcheng, the party chief and vice-president of PetroChina International, disappeared shortly before the Lunar New Year holiday, the China Business Journal reported, citing an anonymous source.

......Zhou's power bases were in the police, the oil sector and Sichuan, and it is an open secret that he has close links with fallen Chongqing party boss Bo Xilai .

Communist Party leaders endorsed a decision to probe Zhou at their secretive annual meeting at Beidaihe in August last year, the Post reported earlier.
