Over 15,000 graft cases detected in Chinese govt projects
Beijing: Cases of corruption are on the
rise in China as 15,600 graft cases related to government
funded civil engineering projects were detected last year.
Over 5,100 people involved in the cases had been
handed over to the judicial authorities, the Communist Party
of China said in a statement today, according to the official
Xinhua news agency.
Central authorities had launched a crackdown on the
construction sector in July 2009 and later ordered nationwide
inspections on government-sponsored construction projects with
an investment of five million yuan (USD7.46 lakh) or more.
The crackdown examined over 366,000 projects and found
about 210,000 problems ranging from poor quality of
construction projects to briberies.
The statement did not give details of the problems,
but said nearly three quarters of them had been addressed.
