Tian Yubao (born 24 December 1951) is a Chinese politician of Hui ethnicity. He was investigated by the Communist Party of China's anti-graft agency in November 2014. Previously he served as the Chairman of Taiyuan Municipal People's Congress.[1]

Life

Tian was born and raised in Taiyuan, Shanxi, to an ethnic Hui family. It is not clear if he has a university degree.

In 1995 he became the party chief of Nanjiao District, a position he held until May 1997, when he was appointed the party chief of Xiaodian District. When he presided over party work in Xiaodian, Liu Suiji was district governor; when he left Xiaodian, Liu succeeded him as party chief there.

In 2002 he was transferred to a position in Taiyuan, capital of Shanxi province, and appointed the Vice-Chairman of Taiyuan Municipal People's Congress (futingji), where he was put in charge of legal work and led party-related work.

Tian Yubao retired in May 2012, and disappeared from public life.

After a quick investigation, Tian was expelled from the Communist Party on December 26. He was accused of taking large bribes and also purchasing stocks in a manner that violated regulations. His retirement benefits were also rescinded by the state, and his case was moved to judicial authorities for prosecution.[2]

On June 16, 2016, he was sentenced to 13 years and fined 500,000 yuan for taking bribes and holding a huge amount of property without legal sources. All his illegal gains will be confiscated and handed over to the State.
