Two more top officers investigated for graft
China’s Defense Ministry said two more former senior officers were being investigated for corruption as part of a sweeping campaign against graft.
China’s military also has begun a six-month investigation to root out corruption in construction projects, according to the army’s official newspaper.
The campaign will cover buildings erected without permission that exceed specifications or are illegally rented, as part of a broader drive against corruption, the People’s Liberation Army Daily reported.
The military earlier this year ordered barracks to be built as simply and economically as possible, without using ostentatious or imported building materials.
China intensified its crackdown on corruption in the military in the late 1990s, banning the People’s Liberation Army from engaging in business.
