Former Security Head Zhou Visits China University of Petroleum

Oct. 1 (Bloomberg) -- Zhou Yongkang, the former head of China’s security apparatus, visited the China University of Petroleum today, according to the Beijing-based university’s website.

Zhou met students and professors of the university where he had graduated, according to an article on the website. There were also pictures of a smiling Zhou posted on the site.

Chinese Communist Party leaders agreed to investigate retired Politburo Standing Committee member Zhou on corruption allegations, the South China Morning Post reported on Aug. 30, citing people it didn’t identify. The probe would examine if Zhou and his family benefited from oil and property deals facilitated by people including his son, Zhou Bin, according to the report.

An investigation of Zhou would be the first targeting a current or former Standing Committee member since the 1966-1976 Cultural Revolution, and would follow the corruption-related trial of ousted Politburo member Bo Xilai. Bo was sentenced last month to life in prison.

Three calls to the China University of Petroleum’s press office went unanswered. Today is a National Day holiday in China.
