Call me a cynic...

but this applies to corporations and not government entities, right?

Additionally, if this guy was really involved with corruption, why is he not imprisoned? OK losing his communist party status means a massive loss of prestige, income, etc. but prison is a far more effective deterrant wouldnt you think? Or was this simply the case that he annoyed the wrong person higher up the food chain.

When everyone is corrupt, and there's evidence against everyone, then it all comes down to who falls afoul of the big bosses when they need to make an example of someone...
