Dong Hongyun (simplified Chinese: 董洪运; traditional Chinese: 董洪運; pinyin: Dǒng Hóngyùn; born November 1956) is a Chinese politician from Shanxi province. He was investigated by the Communist Party of China's anti-graft agency in December 2014. Previously he served as the Communist Party Secretary of Xinzhou and before that, mayor of Lüliang.
He joined the Communist Party of China in June 1976, and got involved in politics in January 1982.
In January 1984, he was appointed Communist Party Secretary of Wan'an Town, and a Standing Committee of the CPC Hongdong County Committee.
In May 1986, he was appointed the Deputy Communist Party Secretary of Xiangning County, he remained in that position until March 1990, when he was transferred to Fushan County and appointed the Deputy Communist Party Secretary. He served as County Governor and Deputy Communist Party Secretary of Fushan County from November 1992, and Communist Party Secretary, the top political position in the county, between May 1993 to November 1995.
On December 29, 2014, state media reported that Dong was being investigated by the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection for "serious violations of laws and regulations". Along with Datong party chief Feng Lixiang, and Yuncheng party chief Wang Maoshe, Dong was one of three sitting municipal leaders investigated in Shanxi province during the sweeping anti-corruption crackdown following the 18th Party Congress.
On August 7, 2015, Dong was expelled from the Communist Party of China following the CCDI investigation. The CCDI accused Dong of being "disloyal and not nice" to the party, "kept important personal information from the [party] organization," visited "private clubs", "sold offices for cash", "unduly interfered in the administrative processing and approvals process [of projects]", and solicited and accepted bribes. He was also said to have interfered in the investigation process, "lied and tried to hide facts from the [investigating] organization, and attempted to conspire with his associates to obstruct the investigation." Dong was indicted on charges of bribery. He was promptly arrested following the announcement to face judicial proceedings.
