A highly regarded financial newspaper has detailed an investigation into a Chinese general under investigation for corruption alleged to have netted at least four truckloads of ill-gotten gains including gold statues and high-end liquor.

The investigation into Lt. Gen. Gu Junshan, corroborated in an online forum by a Defense University professor Gong Fangbin in what was considered an official confirmation, highlights rampant corruption within the Chinese military.

However, details of the case may never be announced publicly because it most likely will go before a military court.

The financial newspaper, Caixin, published several articles Tuesday on Gu's rise to a position of great influence within the military and the investigation against him, including details about confiscated goods and a mansion he built modeled on the Forbidden City in Beijing.
