Top graft-buster orders inspectors to uncover the truth
 ( 2016.09.28 )

BEIJING, Sept. 28 (Xinhua) -- China's top graft-buster Wang Qishan has urged disciplinary inspectors to use the Communist Party of China's (CPC)constitution and rules and speeches made by Chinese President Xi Jinping to help them in their investigations.

Wang, secretary of the CPC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI), made the remarks at a symposium held Wednesday in Beijing on anti-corruption inspections.

He said inspectors must "see through appearances and perceive the essence," to discern the true root cause of corruption.

In particular, they must scrutinize whether officials in supervising positions should be held accountable for corruption under their watch, he said.

China is in the middle of an anti-graft drive, and CCDI inspectors play a major role.

Late last year, CCDI said it would finish inspecting all 280 government bodies or Party organizations by the end of 2017.
