State assets lost through Xinjiang corruption

ANTI-GRAFT inspectors have uncovered power-for-money deals and collusion between officials and investors in seizing state-owned property at Xinjiang Production and Construction Corp.

According to a statement posted on the website of the Communist Party of China Central Commission for Discipline and Inspection (CCDI) on Saturday, power-for-money deals were found in construction and land projects, as well as in buying agricultural materials.

Malpractice, including lax supervision and loss of state assets, was revealed. Inspectors also found officials’ family members to be operating businesses under the jurisdiction of those officials.

Earlier this year, the CCDI launched rounds of inspections of provincial-level authorities, ministries, state-owned institutions and companies. Between March and May, anti-corruption authorities made inspections in Beijing, Tianjin, Liaoning, Fujian, Shandong, Henan, Hainan, Gansu, Ningxia and Xinjiang.

They also inspected the Ministry of Science and Technology, the China Oil and Foodstuffs Corporation, Fudan University and the Xinjiang Production and Construction Corp.

The CCDI began to post findings online this month.

There were “strong complaints” of corruption in mineral exploration and land deals, the CCDI said in a separate statement listing inspection findings for northwest China’s Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region.

Officials held lavish weddings and accepted cash, lived decadently or violated rules to promote staff, the CCDI said.
