Editorial: Inspections Vital to Spur Systemic Changes in Corruption Fight
Although “catching tigers” has become a norm under China’s sweeping anti-corruption drive, a recent documentary co-produced by the Communist Party’s graft buster and China Central Television still managed to trigger a heated public discussion.
The public was both shocked and surprised by the vivid details revealed in the four-episode series titled “The Sharp Sword of Inspection Tours,” about senior government officials caught in the anti-graft net cast by the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI). This included Huang Xingguo, the former Tianjin mayor who was an avid believer in feng shui and was good at covering up his corrupt deals; Wang Bao’an, the former head of the National Bureau of Statistics, who helped his brothers secure top government positions; and Lu Enguang, who faked his age, diploma and work-experience records and bribed his way into posts at key ministries, including the Ministry of Justice, and the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security.
