China Punishes Nearly 600,000 Officials for Disciplinary Violations in 2022
The Chinese Communist Party’s Anti-Corruption Body Announces Sanctions for Various Top Level Officials
The Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCID) announced sanctions against 53 people holding ministerial or provincial positions, according to an official WeChat social media post on January 13, 2023.
Last year, Fu Zhenghua, former Chinese Justice Minister, and Sun Lijun, former Vice Minister of Public Security, were both accused of accepting bribes and sentenced to suspended capital punishment. Furthermore, former Head of the CCP in Hainan Province, Tong Daochi, was sentenced the same way after an investigation conducted by the CCID. During the same period, former Central Commission for Inspection and Discipline senior inspector Dong Hong received a suspended death sentence for accepting bribes.
Xi Jinping, current General Secretary and Chinese President, has put forth an anti-corruption campaign since his rise to power in 2012. Millions of officials have been penalised as a result yet critics point out that this could have been implemented to end the political careers of some of Jinping’s rivals.
