Gao Jinsong (simplified Chinese: 高劲松; traditional Chinese: 高勁松; pinyin: Gāo Jìnsōng; born August 1963) is a former Chinese politician who spent most of his career in Southwest China's Yunnan province. He was investigated by the Communist Party of China's anti-graft agency in April 2015.[1] Previously he served as the Communist Party Secretary of Kunming.[citation needed]

Gao was a delegate to the 11th National People's Congress.

Gao was born and raised in Luxi County, Yunnan. He graduated from Yunnan University, majoring in foreign-related economic management.

In December 2012, he was promoted to become Communist Party Secretary of Qujing, he remained in that position until August 2014, when he was transferred to Kunming, capital of Yunan province, and appointed Communist Party Secretary, the top political position in that city.

Downfall

On April 10, 2015, the state media reported that he was placed under investigation.[2] On the same day, he was dismissed for corruption.[3] Zhao was the third consecutive Kunming party leader to be investigated for corruption or disciplinary offenses. His predecessors Zhang Tianxin and Qiu He were both investigated.

On August 3, 2016, he was expelled from the Communist Party of China (CPC). In October, his case was transferred to the procuratorate for further investigation and prosecution. On December 27, he stood trial for bribery at the Intermediate People's Court of Lincang.
