China’s Top Anti-Graft Inspector Under Investigation for Graft


BEIJING (Reuters) — The head of the anti-graft committee for China’s Finance Ministry has been put under investigation himself for suspected graft, the ruling Communist Party’s anti-corruption watchdog said Sunday.

Mo Jiancheng was suspected of “serious discipline breaches,” a euphemism for graft, the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection said in a statement.

Mo, who became the top graft buster for the finance ministry in December 2015, was also a member of the ministry’s Party committee and previously served as deputy Party secretary and vice governor of Jiangxi Province.

Chinese President Xi Jinping has waged war on graft for over four years, vowing to continue until he has cleared the Communist Party of both high and low-level graft, which he warns could threaten the party’s existence if left unchecked
