Disgraced China security chief accused of economic 'meddling'

The ruling Communist Party announced in July that Zhou, one of China's most powerful politicians of the last decade, was being probed for suspected "serious disciplinary violations", the usual euphemism for corruption, though it could also imply additional wrongdoing.
