CCDI: Deepening International Anti-Corruption Cooperation

On July 10, the Communist Party’s Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) published the sixth article in a series on the international pursuit of those corrupt officials who have already misappropriated funds and fled China. The sixth in this series focuses on working with international norms and local laws.

The article stated that the international anti-corruption pursuit has become part of China’s agenda in external relations and should be adept at international rules and local laws. “[We] should make good use of the platform of the China-U.S. Anticorruption Working Group of the Joint Liaison Group [JLG ACWG], and focus on promoting bilateral cooperation in the anti-corruption law enforcement mechanism in Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Britain, and othr countries; and in setting up joint investigations, information sharing, and expeditious repatriation channels; and in building judicial cooperation in the legal system of law enforcement.”  The article further stated that such an international anti-corruption pursuit should be results-oriented. The measure should be how many corrupt officials are tracked down and brought to China, and how much of the misappropriated funds are located and returned to the State coffers.
