Bei­jing will set up G20’s first anti-graft cen­ter

China Daily (USA) - - NEWS CAPSULE -

China is mov­ing to es­tab­lish the G20’s first anti-graft re­search cen­ter.

The cen­ter will pro­vide in­tel­li­gence sup­port in the hunt for eco­nomic fugi­tives and con­fis­ca­tion of their ill-got­ten as­sets. It will be based at Bei­jing Nor­mal Uni­ver­sity and be­gin op­er­a­tions in a few months.

Dozens of ex­perts and pro­fes­sion­als who spe­cial­ize in graft-re­lated stud­ies from China and other G20 economies will be re­cruited, ac­cord­ing to the Com­mu­nist Party of China’s Cen­tral Com­mis­sion of Dis­ci­pline In­spec­tion, the coun­try’s top dis­ci­pline watch­dog.

“The es­tab­lish­ment of such a cen­ter will lay a solid foun­da­tion for stud­ies of cross-bor­der cor­rup­tion crimes and of­fer in­tel­li­gence sup­port to fight cor­rup­tion glob­ally,” said Cai Wei, a deputy di­rec­tor of the CCDI.
