Chinese police have unearthed a fortune of gold in the basement of the home of former Chinese mayor of Danzhou.
In the secret cellar of former mayor Zhang Qi's home was no less than 13 tons of bullion-formed gold, which amounted to several hundred million US dollars, reports The News.
The authorities also seized a huge amount of cash in the form of dollars and euros worth 34 billion, including 268 billion.
The contents of the basement, although priceless, could have saved Greece twice from its default, according to expert estimates.
In addition, Zhang Qi owns luxurious houses with a total area of several thousand square meters.
Since his appointment as President in 2013, Xi Jinping has made the fight against corruption a priority. No less than 254 senior officials accused of corruption were dismissed during their two terms.
