Qiushi: Tracking Down Corrupt Officials Who Fled Overseas

On May 31, 2016, Qiushi published a commentary that Huang Shuxian, the Minister of Supervision and Deputy Secretary of the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) wrote about Xi Jinping’s speeches on cooperating with foreign governments in the anti-corruption campaign. 

Huang wrote that these speeches demonstrate the resolve to track down all corrupt officials wherever they are. “Punishing corrupt officials with zero tolerance has consistently been the position of our Party.” In discussing how to view the anti-corruption campaign, Xi noted that anti-corruption is not a power struggle and there is no "house of cards.” If one does not “offend” corrupt officials, he will offend more than 1.3 billion people. 
Huang further stated that, in his speeches, Xi discussed the capture of corrupt officials who have fled China. Xi noted that these corrupt officials must not be allowed to hide in “paradise to avoid punishment" with impunity. They must be tracked down and brought to China, even if it takes five, 10, or 20 years. Huang stated that these important expositions show Xi Jinping’s strong sense of mission and tenacious determination.
