As Comrade Bo Xlai is suspected of being involved in serious discipline violations, the Central Committee of the Communist Part of China has decided to suspend his member ship of the CPC Central Committee Political Bureau and the CPC Central Committee, in line with the CPC Constitution and the rules on investigation of CPC discipline inspection departments, the official Xinhua News Agency said.

The Central Commission for Discipline Inspection of the CPC will file the case for investigation, it added.

Chinese police also set up a team to reinvestigate the case concerning British citizen Neil Heywood who was found dead in Chongqing on No. 15.

Former Chongqing police chief Wang Lijun made allegations concerning the case, Xinhua News Agency learned from authorities. Wang entered, without authorization, the U.S. general consulate in Chengdu on Feb. 6 and stayed there for one day.

Police gave the case priority and set up a team to reinvestigate the case to uncover the facts.

According to the reinvestigation, Bogu Kailai, wife of Bo Xilai, and their son were on good terms with Heywood. However, they had a financial dispute.

According to the reinvestigation, evidence indicated that Heywood died by homicide, and Bogu Kailai and Zhang Xiaojun, an orderly at Bo's home, are highly suspected.

Bogu Kailai and Zhang have been transferred to judicial authorities as suspects in the crime of intentional homicide.

According to senior officials from related authorities, China is a socialist country ruled by law, and the sanctity and authority of law shall not be trampled on. Whoever has broken the law will face justice, no matter who is involved.
