7,000 officials punished in China for violating austerity drive

About 7000 Chinese officials were punished in October for violating the government's policies for a thrifty work style, the country's anti-graft body said on Friday.



Beijing: About 7000 Chinese officials were punished in October for violating the government's policies for a thrifty work style, the country's anti-graft body said on Friday.

A total of 6,977 officials were punished by the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) of the ruling Communist Party of China (CPC).

Officials punished were involved in a total of 5,263 violations found in October.

The officials were found violating policies on government buildings, vehicles, overseas travel with public fees, sending or accepting gifts, excessive government spending on receptions, extravagance in weddings and funerals, the CCDI said on its website.

One of those officials served at the ministerial level and 13 were ranked at the prefectural level, the anti-graft body said.

Chinese President Xi Jinping introduced an eight-point rule to fight corruption and bureaucracy.

The campaign requires officials to minimise meetings, cut government spending and follow strict housing and vehicle standards.
