With the approval of Hu Jintao, the Chairman of the Central Military Commission, the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) recently published Regulations for the Discipline Inspection Commission. The new Regulations were established in the latest attempt by the Chinese Army to battle internal corruption. The Regulations outline a detailed reporting structure, basic principles, organizational settings, duties and responsibilities, processes, and working rules and requirements. This new document is considered the latest fruit of years of the army’s anti-corruption experiences. It also provides clearer working rules for the Discipline Inspection Commission. The Regulations even include details on how to handle the situation when Commission members themselves are in violation of the rules.
