Figures of China Corruption – People Net

From Yulun Jiandu (link), translated by CDT:

Since the 16th Congress of the Chinese Communist Party, more than 100 minister- and provincial-level officials were sentenced for corruption, an unprecedented number, according to statistics released by the Supreme Procuratorate. In 2005, 47,306 officials were discipline-punished by Chinese supervision agencies.

Another authoritative source last year registered 703 corrupt officials who were arrested while attempting to fly out of the country with cash, 14.5% more than a year before. More than 7 billion yuan ($930 million) was taken back last year, 62.9% more than in 2004.

Last year, 8,490 public officers were investigated for taking bribes of over 100,000 yuan or misusing public funds of more than 1 million yuan; 2,799 county-level and above officials (including eight minister- and provincial-level cadres) were investigated for criminal cases; 7,805 officials were investigated for crimes in finance, education, medicine, electricity, land, transportation industries; 9,117 state-owned enterprise cadres were investigated for pocketing, embezzling or misusing public funds; 1,931 village cadres were investigated for embezzling or misusing public funds or properties.
