BEIJING, June 30 (Xinhua) -- Over 5,800 Chinese officials have been penalized for disciplinary violations related to construction projects since August last year, a spokesman for the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) said Wednesday.

The officials were implicated in more than 9,900 cases of corruption. Some 3,400 of the officials have been referred to judicial authorities, CCDI spokesman Wu Yuliang said at a press conference.

The CPC Central Committee decided in July last year to launch a two-year campaign to tackle corruption in the construction sector.

As of May, discipline authorities had probed more than 340,000 construction projects and uncovered disciplinary violations in 140,000 of the projects being probed.

About 60,000 cases have been rectified, according to Wu.
