China’s top anti-graft authority has punished two of its own senior officials for corruption and adopted new rules to supervise its investigators more strictly, state media said on Monday (Jan 9).
The new regulations, passed at the annual meeting of the ruling Communist Party’s Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) over the weekend, seek to clarify how the country’s 500,000 or so corruption investigators should deal with tip-offs, case management and confiscated assets, the China Daily newspaper said.
The body also decided that two of its former senior officials, Wang Zhongtian and Li Jianbo, would be punished for serious “disciplinary violations”, the official Xinhua news agency said without giving details.
