China Launches Site to Report Corruption

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 5:23 pm

China is putting its marathon anti-graft crackdown online, launching a Web site for the public to report corrupt officials.

The site adds to efforts to assure China’s public that the ruling Communist Party takes complaints seriously even as many believe they face retaliation for reporting abuses.

The new site is run by the party’s Central Commission for Discipline Inspection, the official Xinhua News Agency reported.

The Web site offers Chinese villagers and others a way to lodge complaints directly, bypassing local authorities who are sometimes criticized for retaliating against petitioners or refusing to take action on complaints.
