From People’s Daily Online:
China has intensified efforts to weed out corrupt activities in varied forms and plans even tighter control in this regard, as shown in court and procuratorate work reports delivered Wednesday to the third annual session of the 10th National People’s Congress (NPC), the top legislature.
To further help the country’s battle against corruption, NPC deputy Zhou Hongyu proposed an anti-corruption law be enacted as soon as possible. “A specific law on anti-corruption and an independent anti-graft network that reports directly to the parliament will constitute a legal basis for China’s fight against corruption,” said Zhou, from central China’s Hubei Province, also suggesting independent auditing and self reporting systems be set up to keep civil servants from corruption. “The anti-corruption fight is still an arduous task,” said Premier Wen Jiabao in his government work report on March 5.
