Two more top of­fi­cers in­ves­ti­gated for graft

China Daily (Canada) - - FRONT PAGE -

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.
