China to launch new round of anti-graft inspections

Xinhua, March 26, 2014 Adjust font size:

The Communist Party of China's (CPC) top discipline watchdog on Tuesday announced a new round of inspections of officials to expose corruption nationwide.

Inspectors will be sent to the provincial-level regions of Beijing, Tianjin, Liaoning, Fujian, Shandong, Henan, Hainan, Gansu, Ningxia, Xinjiang, and the Xinjiang Production and Construction Corps, the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) of the CPC said in a statement.

The CCDI will also send anti-graft teams to the Ministry of Science and Technology, Fudan University and the China Oil & Foodstuffs Co., it added.

The inspection is aimed at uncovering harmful behavior by officials, including trading power for money, abusing power, and bribery, as well as harmful work styles such as formalism, bureaucracy, hedonism and extravagance.

The CPC began routinely sending teams to oversee the performance of officials in 2003, and the practice was formally written into the Party's Constitution five years later.
