Xi Jinping’s anti-corruption campaign continues to gather pace as Tuesday saw the opening of a new website designed to allow members of the public to complain about government officials of the Communist Party of China.
Xinhua reports that the website, which is run by the CPC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI), allows people to anonymously submit their grievances, and is aimed at helping to build a ‘clean government.’
Xinhua also mentions a new ‘whistle blowing channel’ that was launched on Tuesday on the website, which aims to bring down corrupt officials that are living overseas.
In the last year, with Xi’s vow to bring down ‘flies and tigers’ alike, we have seen record stashes of cash, stashes of gold, confessions, and even the sackings of phantom officials. Judging by that phone prank in Shaanxi, we imagine quite a few complaints will be coming through.
