On June 19, the Communist Party’s Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) published an article addressing the importance of building a strong case in China when conducting an overseas pursuit of those corrupt officials who have already fled China.
The article stated that, to track down corrupt officials who fled China with stolen funds, it is important to do ones homework well inside China. The first task is to get to the bottom of the facts. Only with accurate numbers and solid groundwork can the effort to track down the corrupt officials and stolen funds be effective.
The article further stated that the Anti-Corruption Coordination Team of the Central Committee of the CCP has enhanced its command and coordination through the establishment of an International Office to Track Down Corrupt Officials and Stolen Funds and through that office’s counterpart at provincial levels. The Devil is in the details.
“We should not only identify common patterns in all these cases and take targeted measures to prevent corrupt officials from fleeing China; we should also locate the loopholes in our surveillance system that allow them to escape."
