On the 22nd, the Disciplinary Committee of the Chinese Communist Party announced it would punish 146,517 of its members for breaking party rules about corruption and negligence. 5373 were indicted for crimes like taking bribes, and their cases were passed to the government’s judiciary branch for sentencing.

On July 1, the Chinese Communist Party is celebrating the 90th anniversary of its founding. It is thought to be strengthening its response to official corruption because of widespread public dissatisfaction about the issue.

Assistant committee secretary Wu Yu-liang told the press, “We have strictly controlled the corruption in party headquarters and the national public service which has caused serious accidents and group protests. We’ve been revolutionizing our government oversight since 2001. As a result of our inspections of personnel and projects, the central government has canceled over 2000 projects and the regional authorities over 7000.”
