China's Top Anti-Graft Body Exposes Official Decadence

China's top graft buster exposed six cases involving officials violating the eight-point rules on austerity.


The officials were found in cases of embezzlement of public funds, use of public funds for banquets, unapproved use of official vehicles, and use of public money to travel overseas, according to a statement released by the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI).


The officials received punishments ranging form intra-Party warning to dismissal, it said.


In one case, Yang Ziqiang, assistant governor of the People's Bank of China, received an intra-Party warning after he was found to have used public funds worth 14,473 yuan ($2,167.33) to hold banquets for his relatives in Qingdao, Shandong Province, in 2014.


The eight-point rules were introduced by the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee at the end of 2012 to address bureaucracy, formalism and extravagance.


The CCDI has been publicizing such cases since April 2014.
