Anti-graft cam­paign in­ves­ti­gated 140,000

China Daily (Canada) - - NEWS CAPSULE -

Pros­e­cu­tors han­dled 110,000 cor­rup­tion cases, in­volv­ing 140,000 sus­pects, from the be­gin­ning of 2013 un­til this Au­gust, ac­cord­ing to the Supreme Peo­ple’s Procu­ra­torate (SPP).

“Our coun­try has been tak­ing decisive anti-cor­rup­tion mea­sures since 2013 and made no­table achieve­ments in han­dling cor­rup­tion cases,” said SPP Vice-Pres­i­dent Sun Qian.

A sweep­ing cam­paign against cor­rup­tion and ex­trav­a­gance was launched af­ter the 18th Na­tional Congress of the Com­mu­nist Party of China (CPC) in late 2012 when the new lead­er­ship headed by Xi Jin­ping vowed to crack down on cor­rup­tion.

The cam­paign is still go­ing strong as dis­ci­pline in­spec­tions rou­tinely un­cover mis­be­hav­ing of­fi­cials at var­i­ous lev­els and pass their cases to ju­di­cial or­gans.
