Anti­Cor­rup­tion Cam­paign

Beijing Review - - This Week -

The top anti-graft body of the Com­mu­nist Party of China (CPC) said on Oc­to­ber 10 that 6,187 of­fi­cials were pun­ished in Septem­ber for vi­o­lat­ing the Party’s aus­ter­ity rules.

The of­fi­cials were in­volved in 4,506 cases, ac­cord­ing to the CPC Cen­tral Com­mis­sion for Dis­ci­pline In­spec­tion (CCDI).

Award­ing an unau­tho­rized al­lowance or bonus was the most com­mon mis­de­meanor, fol­lowed by giv­ing or ac­cept­ing gifts and mis­use of pub­lic ve­hi­cles.

A to­tal of 47,005 of­fi­cials in­volved in 33,471 cases were pun­ished in the first nine months of 2017, the CCDI said.

The CPC re­leased its eight-point rules on aus­ter­ity in late 2012 to re­duce un­de­sir­able work prac­tices.

The CCDI has a monthly re­port­ing sys­tem on the im­ple­men­ta­tion of the rules within pro­vin­cial-level gov­ern­ments, cen­tral Party and gov­ern­men­tal agen­cies, cen­trally ad­min­is­tered state-owned en­ter­prises and cen­tral fi­nan­cial in­sti­tu­tions.
