China Party school to publish anti-graft textbook

CHINA: The Chinese Communist Party’s main school for training its officials will publish a textbook on ways to tackle corruption, a state newspaper said on Tuesday.

“This will be the first systematic, formal and exclusive textbook on anti-corruption in the history of the Central Party School,” the China Daily quoted Hou Shaohua, deputy director of the teaching department, as saying.

“Ethical and moral education is also part of the textbook,” Hou added.

Work on the book began after President Hu Jintao called for better education to help weed out corrupt officials at the annual meeting of the Party’s Central Commission for Discipline Inspection last December, the report said.

But the newspaper made no mention of the book’s contents.

Official corruption was sharply reduced after 1949 but has made a sweeping comeback since market reforms began in the 1980s.

The government has warned that corruption in China is so serious it may threaten the Communist Party’s rule and survival.

State media said last week that the number of high-level officials being investigated or arrested in the last four years was higher than any other period in the party’s history.

In one of the most high profile recent cases, Shanghai’s Party chief Chen Liangyu was sacked last September after being implicated in the misuse of money in Shanghai’s 10 billion yuan ($1.29 billion) social security fund.
