Pan Yunhe, the deputy director of the academy, told the paper that the academy is not able to cancel Xie Jianpings membership.
However, Xie, who sparked controversy among the public and media when he became a member of the academy in December 2011 due to his work in the tobacco research field, is refusing to give up his membership, the report said.
On Feb 28, seven institutions called for an investigation on Xies academic background, claiming that he is suspected of academic cheating, the report added.Related StoriesAcademy vows no more tobacco science membersChinese tobacco firms tax payments surgeAcademy keeps tobacco scientist aboardPlan to curb tobacco use applaudedChina mulls tobacco control lawTobacco control plan criticized as weakWHO urges tax hike on tobaccoTobacco proposed as earthquake reliefLong-awaited lawsuit against tobacco giant opensPhotoChinese people mark festival with eight treasure porridgeSmog changes color of high-speed trainWorlds longest dust screen group being built in N ChinaHow high-speed rail network transforms Chinas social landscapeCompetition exhibits cold cutsHeavy smog continues to choke Chinese citiesLatestNew map of the Moon under creation in ChinaThe museum that is always openPremiers visit shows road to innovation for street businessesChinese people mark festival with eight treasure porridge415,000 punished for discipline violations in 2016State Council NewsStreamlining administration is key to invigorating marketChina issues plan to control occupational diseasesExclusiveHow high-speed rail network transformed Chinas social landscapePresident Xis domestic and overseas trips in 2016Year in Review: Chinas battle to save wildlife in 2016Editors picksChina set to strengthen global roleHardships and tears behind Chinas booming food delivery serviceTen photos you dont wanna missTen photos from around China: Dec 23-29SpecialBattle against povertyShenzhou XI: New frontiers, new milestoneBACK TO THE TOPHOMECHINAWORLDBUSINESSLIFESTYLECULTURETRAVELWATCHTHISSPORTSOPINIONREGIONALFORUMNEWSPAPERChina Daily PDFChina Daily E-paperMOBILECopyright 1995 -var oTime = new Date();
