A review of 2013 China's anti-corruption work

01-10-2014 14:04 BJT

Now let's take a look at China's continuing fight against corruption.

Last year saw 1.95 million reported cases of corruption, up 50 percent from 2012. 10-percent of the cases were processed, and 87-percent of those cases were closed. 18,200 officials and party members were punished. 6,400 were county-level officials, that is a more than 36-percent increase compared with 2012.

A top Party discipline official says the CPC will spare no efforts to root out corruption within its ranks.

"We will continue to investigate every single detail of every single case of graft we uncover. We will punish anyone who disobeys party rules and national laws. When we suspect situations where people may be liable to succumb to corruption, we will try to prevent it happening by talking to them and reminding them of the rules. This is the only way to prevent wrongdoing at all levels of the party, from the bottom right through to the very top." Zhang Jun, deputy secretary of CPC Discipline Inspection Commission, said.
