BEIJING - A local prosecuting body has decided to arrest Yu Yuanhui, formerly a senior provincial official from south China's Guangxi, for suspected accepting of bribes, the Supreme People's Procuratorate (SPP) announced Thursday.

The decision was made by the provincial people's procuratorate of central China's Hunan Province, the SPP said in a press release.

Yu was a member of the standing committee of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Regional Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC), and Party chief of its capital city, Nanning.

The case is still under investigation, according to the SPP.

The CPC announced on Oct. 16 that it had expelled the 51-year-old and removed him from public office for "serious disciplinary offenses."
