State-run com­pany had 24 ‘naked of­fi­cials’

China Daily (Canada) - - NEWS CAPSULE -

Twenty- four of­fi­cials at State-run China State Con­struc­tion En­gi­neer­ing Corp have been iden­ti­fied as “naked of­fi­cials” — those who live in China while their spouses or chil­dren live as per­ma­nent res­i­dents abroad, ei­ther by visa or cit­i­zen­ship.

The Cen­tral Com­mis­sion for Dis­ci­pline In­spec­tion, the na­tion’s top anti-graft au­thor­ity, looked into the com­pany’s 4,300 ex­ec­u­tives and depart­ment heads and the sta­tus of their fam­ily mem­bers.

Un­der newly re­vised ad­min­is­tra­tive rules, the 24 of­fi­cials who were iden­ti­fied must choose be­tween their fam­i­lies’ na­tion­al­i­ties or keep­ing their cur­rent posts at the com­pany. The com­pany said in a state­ment that 23 of the in­di­vid­u­als have been re­moved from their posts.
