BEIJING (Reuters): Chinese anti-graft authorities are investigating a television producer related to a disgraced former presidential aide probed for graft last month, the media reported on Monday. Luo Fanghua, an executive of the business channel at state broadcaster China Central Television, is the latest of several of the network’s senior producers, executives and journalists to face investigation for corruption. Luo is married to the brother-in-law of Ling Jihua, once a top aide to Chinese President Hu Jintao who came under investigation last month, according to a state-backed news website.

 Luo’s husband, Gu Yuanxu, was sacked from his public security post in the northeastern province of Heilongjiang after Ling came under investigation, the report said, citing the respected financial news magazine Caixin. Ling was demoted in September 2012 after sources said his son was involved in the deadly crash of a flashy sports car, embarrassing the ruling Communist Party, which is sensitive over perceptions of extravagance by top party officials and their families.
