Chinese local government officials large graft cases unveiled
JULY 16, 2014 21:12  
The Chinese government뭩 crackdown campaign on anti-corruption targeting from high-level officials to lower level officials has revealed a wide range of grafts taken by local government officials. They include a chain of apartment keys that could fill an entire handbag, passport stamps showing some 80 times of travels abroad, and hundreds of pornography compact discs.

Jinghua Times said on Tuesday that Wu Zhizhong, former assistant of the legal department of the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, owns 33 houses in China and one in Canada in the name of his family members. Some 2,000 items such as bundles of cash, gold and silver nuggets, rare and valuable paintings and watches were found in his houses in Beijing and Huhehaote. The inspectors said, 밒f all values are added, it will reach an amount that he must save his monthly pay for more than 300 years. A Chinese official뭩 monthly pay is less than 10,000 yuan (1,609 U.S. dollars). Bao Riengen, a former vice mayor of Huhehaote in the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, amassed large wealthy by taking apartments as bribes from constructors while he was governing urban construction projects. Sometimes he asked for bribes, and other times builders gave him bribes. The newspaper said that he did not refuse bribes and took grafts in a 뱓he-more-the-better way.

Xinhua News Agency, a state-run news media, said on Tuesday that the Communist Party of China decided to remove Luoguan, referring to officials who moved their family and assets abroad, from major positions. This is because they might run away anytime whenever their corruption is disclosed.
