Corruption guidelines for Party upgraded

THE Communist Party of China Central Committee issued yesterday a code of ethics for cadres to follow to ensure clean practice in their workplace and head off corruption.

The guidelines specify 52 unacceptable practices for Party leaders and officials, including accepting cash or financial instruments as gifts, and using their influence to benefit spouses, children or "special concerned people" with regards to their employment, stock trading or business.

The guidelines also prohibit Party officials from involvement in for-profit activities and using public funds for personal interests.

They are banned from spending inappropriately large amounts of government funds on the purchase of vehicles, office receptions, construction of office buildings, high-cost recreational activities and overseas tours.

They are also banned from abusing their power to promote people in a way that is against relevant regulations.

"As an important intra-Party regulation, the code is significant for ensuring clean governance among Party officials and advancing the fight against corruption and building a clean government," the CPC Central Committee said in a circular.

The Central Committee urged officials to earnestly follow the guidelines and warned those who violated the regulations would be "severely disciplined."

The Party introduced an ethics code for CPC cadres on a trial basis in March 1997.

"As the Party's fight against corruption was being intensified in the new era," the Central Committee revised the 1997 version and released yesterday's code.
