Officials warned: Affairs dangerous

MORE than 95 percent of government officials found to be corrupt were involved in extramarital love affairs, a senior Party discipline official said in a report.

Those who had affairs always had financial problems, Qi Peiwen, an official with the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection of the Communist Party of China, said in Dongguan, Guangdong Province, Guangzhou Daily reported yesterday.

As civil servants, government officials did not have high incomes and could not afford lovers in most cases, Qi said. As a result, they tried every way possible to make money through their positions.

Qi warned officials to avoid breaking laws and to keep a safe distance when dealing with businessmen.

"Any leader who gets too close to businessmen will have financial problems," Qi said. "Once you accept gifts, ... you enter their traps."
