China dis­ci­plines 4,900 vi­o­la­tors of fru­gal­ity

China Daily (Canada) - - NEWS CAPSULE -

The Com­mu­nist Party of China (CPC)’s top anti-graft body an­nounced that more than 4,900 of­fi­cials were rep­ri­manded for vi­o­lat­ing aus­ter­ity rules in Oc­to­ber, bring­ing the to­tal pun­ished this year to 36,600.

The of­fi­cials pun­ished last month, in­clud­ing two provin­cial and min­is­te­rial level of­fi­cials, were im­pli­cated in more than 3,800 cases, about a fourth of which in­volved unap­proved use of pub­lic ve­hi­cles, the CPC Cen­tral Com­mis­sion for Dis­ci­pline In­spec­tion (CCDI) said in a rou­tine re­port on its web­site.

Unau­tho­rized al­lowances and sub­si­dies, lav­ish wed­dings and fu­ner­als as well as il­licit gift giv­ing and re­ceiv­ing were in­cluded in vi­o­la­tions.

Ac­cord­ing to the CCDI, more than 71,000 of­fi­cials were sub­ject to dis­ci­plinary ac­tion for break­ing aus­ter­ity rules in 2014.

As of the end of Oc­to­ber, some 27,000 cases in­volv­ing four provin­cial and min­is­te­rial level of­fi­cials have been dealt with in the coun­try’s fru­gal­ity cam­paign in 2015, it said.
