Bo Xilai expelled from Communist Party in China


Former member of China’s Communist Party Bo Xilai has been expelled from the party and will face criminal charges. Bo was the leader of the Communist Party of Chongqing. He’s accused of abuse of power and corruption.

Gu Kailai, his wife, was given a suspended death sentence in August for killing Neil Heywood.

Bo hasn’t been seen in public since just after the scandal started. In April, he was suspended from his party posts. Bo is also accused of taking brides and improper relations with women.
