NEA Director Nur Bekri, 57, is accused of "serious" disciplinary violations, China's Central Commission for Discipline Inspection said in a statement Friday. Bekri, an ethnic Uighur and previously a long-time chief of Xinjiang autonomous region, is also vice chairman of the National Development & Reform Commission.
A NEA spokesman referred questions to the inspection commission. Bekri was traveling to Russia as an aide to Vice Premier Han Zheng as recently as Tuesday, according to the NDRC. He was still listed as NEA chief on its website Friday morning, but had been removed by afternoon.
