China starts new round of anti-graft inspection

Xinhua, July 4, 2016 Adjust font size:

China's central authority has started the 10th round of inspection work, with inspection teams having been deployed to 16 agencies and provincial regions, the top anti-graft body said Sunday.

According to the website of the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI), inspection teams went to the State Council Legislative Affairs Office, the National Audit Office, Tianjin Municipality, Hubei Province and others.

A total of 32 agencies and provincial regions will be inspected, the CCDI said. Inspection teams will be deployed to four provincial regions that have been inspected in previous inspection work.

Discipline inspection teams dispatched by CCDI to agencies and provincial regions will also be inspected this time around.

Inspection teams will work in agencies and provincial regions for two months.

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.
