The main leaders of the Lanshan Party Committee, county government, county People’s Congress, and county Discipline Inspection Commission attached great importance to this matter. Through the county Discipline Inspection Commission’s investigation, on November 5th, the Lanshan county Standing Committee considered and decided to remove Pan Changwu as Deputy Secretary and member of the county’s Forestry Bureau Party Committee, as well as Political Commissar of the county’s Forestry Public Security Bureau. In addition, in accordance with legal procedure, it proposed to the county People’s Congress Standing Committee that he be removed from his position as Director of the county’s Forestry Bureau.

After the county Discipline Inspection Commission opened and invested the case, [they] determined that Pan Changwu, as a Communist Party member, leader, and cadre, committing adultery with her had a negative effect [on society], and so gave him a serious warning punishment within the Park on October 23rd. According to the “Regulations for the Selection, Appointment, and Work of Party and Government Leaders and Cadres”, the county Standing Committee considered and decided to dismiss him from his relevant positions.
