Rules adopted to keep anti-graft teams honest
The country’s 500,000-plus corruption investigators are being placed under stricter supervision as a regulation to standardize graft probes was adopted.
Experts said the regulation, passed at the annual plenary meeting of the top anti-corruption watchdog — the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection of the Communist Party of China — can help ensure an unsullied disciplinary team, after some corrupt investigators were exposed.
The regulation sets clear standards on how to handle corruption tips, how to check and review cases and how to manage ill-gotten money and assets, according to a report published on the commission's website on Sunday.
China launched a massive anticorruption and austerity campaign as the top Party leadership was elected in late 2012.
