In the latest move to combat corruption, the CPC Central Committee has issued a new regulation for those officials whose children and spouses have migrated overseas.
Dubbed "Naked Officials", these government employees must disclose their rank and the whereabouts of their immediate family members if they have moved to foreign countries. The new regulation also stipulates the procedures "naked officials" must follow when applying for personal passports. They must also report any travel plans to Hong Kong, Macao or Taiwan before departure.
Major scandals have erupted in recent years involving corrupt officials and their family members fleeing abroad with unearned wealth to avoid prosecution under Chinese law. Many of these officials sent their spouses and children overseas before transferring their money out of China.
