Sun Zhaoxue, former general manager of China Aluminum Corp, was found to have taken advantage of his position to "secure benefits for others, solicit and accept a huge amount in bribes," said the CPC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection in an announcement on Dec 23.
He is also allegedly guilty of adultery and has been expelled from the Communist Party, the announcement added, as China steps up its anti-graft campaign.
Sun has been held for investigation for "suspected serious legal and disciplinary violations" since September. His case has been already handed over to prosecutors.
Before joining Chalco, Sun served as general manager of the China National Gold Group Corp, the country's biggest gold producer, from 2006 to 2013.
