Cash re­wards of­fered in fight against cor­rup­tion

China Daily (Canada) - - NEWSCAPSULE -

Bei­jing People’s Procu­ra­torate an­nounced it will pay cash re­wards of as much as 100,000 yuan ($16,100) to those who pro­vide es­sen­tial ev­i­dence of mis­con­duct by of­fi­cials.

Li Xin­sheng, the chief procu­ra­tor, said the re­wards are in­tended to en­hance the pub­lic’s su­per­vi­sion of of­fi­cials’ be­hav­ior and en­cour­age people to re­port any in­ap­pro­pri­ate ac­tiv­ity.

“Reporting of­fenses is the people’s right by law. It is also an im­por­tant way for people to fight cor­rup­tion and abuse of power,” said Li, adding that the procu­ra­torate en­cour­ages people to re­port crimes us­ing their real names.

Other cities are also en­cour­ag­ing tipoffs through re­wards.
