Of­fi­cials can ‘putt’ if they pay with own money

China Daily (Canada) - - NEWS CAPSULE -

Chi­nese of­fi­cials can play golf if they pay out of their own pock­ets.

Play­ing golf it­self is not a wrong­do­ing, the Dis­ci­pline In­spec­tion and Su­per­vi­sion News, the flag­ship news­pa­per of the Cen­tral Com­mis­sion for Dis­ci­plinary In­spec­tion, said.

Of­fi­cials will be sub­ject to pun­ish­ment if they ac­cept mem­ber­ship cards il­lic­itly, in­clud­ing through sports clubs, re­sorts or en­ter­tain­ment es­tab­lish­ments. Other ac­tiv­i­ties like us­ing pub­lic money to play golf, or play­ing dur­ing of­fice hours, also vi­o­late dis­ci­pline rules, ac­cord­ing to Si Xiao­jian, deputy di­rec­tor of the in­ves­ti­ga­tion de­part­ment of the anti-graft com­mis­sion in Hangzhou, Zhe­jiang prov­ince.
