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.”

中国「腐敗党員」14万6517人処分

 【北京=大木聖馬】中国共産党規律検査委員会は22日、2010年の1年間で汚職や職務怠慢などの党規違反で党員14万6517人を処分し、そのうち5373人については収賄など犯罪に関わったとして司法機関に処分を委ねたと明らかにした。

 共産党は7月1日に創立90周年を控えており、民衆の不満が大きい汚職に対する対策を強化していることをアピールする狙いがあるとみられる。

 記者会見した呉玉良・同委副書記は、「党幹部や国家公務員の腐敗行為、重大事故や集団抗議行動につながる汚職などを厳しく取り締まってきた」と述べた。また、01年から行政審査制度の改革を進め、人事や事業計画の点検を行った結果、中央政府で2000件以上、地方当局で7万7000件以上の案件を取り消すなどしたと明らかにした。
