Pub­lic crit­i­cism of teach­ers with­drawn

China Daily (USA) - - CHINA - By ZHANG YI zhang_yi@chi­nadaily.com.cn

A pub­lic no­tice crit­i­ciz­ing three teach­ers who said to have vi­o­lated reg­u­la­tions by pur­chas­ing veg­eta­bles from street ven­dors in Ninghua county, Fu­jian prov­ince, has been with­drawn fol­low­ing pub­lic out­cry.

A no­ti­fi­ca­tion of rec­ti­fi­ca­tion was pub­lished by the county author­ity on Wed­nes­day, say­ing that “it was in­ap­pro­pri­ate to pub­licly crit­i­cize the teach­ers” and that it will cor­rect its work prac­tices.

On Fri­day last week, the county author­ity pub­lished a no­tice crit­i­ciz­ing three teach­ers who bought veg­eta­bles from street ven­dors, be­cause the teach­ers had been asked to help rid the com­mu­nity of such il­le­gal stands in pub­lic places.

The crit­i­cism of the teach­ers re­ceived wide pub­lic at­ten­tion and trig­gered a heated de­bate on­line.

“Why are teach­ers in the crosshairs of the county author­ity? This is the sec­ond dis­ci­plinary no­tice aimed at teach­ers (this month). Were they be­ing fol­lowed?” wrote a ne­ti­zen called GalaxyNote 5.

Dis­ci­plinary charges against 24 teach­ers who drank al­co­hol dur­ing a meal to­gether were dropped last week.

The teach­ers paid for the meal out of their own pock­ets and were only work­ing a half­day in Septem­ber.

The Com­mis­sion for Dis­ci­plinary In­spec­tion in the prov­ince’s Changzhi city said pre­vi­ous dis­ci­plinary mea­sures were im­proper and re­voked the de­ci­sion.

Most ne­ti­zens said that the lo­cal anti-graft author­ity had made the wrong de­ci­sion re­gard­ing teach­ers, who had not vi­o­lated Party dis­ci­plines and laws. 61,for­mer­head­oftheS­tate-ownedAs­set­sSu­per­vi­sion

Jiang Jiemin,

Ac­cord­ing to the doc­u­men­tary, Jiang was sen­tenced to 16 years in prison in Oc­to­ber last year for tak­ing bribes, pos­sess­ing large amounts of as­sets of un­known prove­nance, and abus­ing his power as an em­ployee of a State-owned com­pany. Jiang mis­used his power as the for­mer chair­man of China Na­tional Petroleum Corp to grant nine oil fields de­vel­op­ment fran­chises, which led to 3 bil­lion yuan in il­le­gal gains. The value of seven of the fields hadn’t been as­sessed be­fore the fran­chises were granted.
