Beijing, March 3 (IANS) China has decided to strictly investigate cases related to malpractice by officials that involve the people’s livelihoods such as food safety and housing issues.
In March, 2011, China had launched a national campaign among its procuratorial agencies to investigate cases of infringement acts and derelictions of duty by officials that harm people’s livelihoods, Xinhua reported.
According to a statement issued at a conference held by the Supreme People’s Procuratorate (SPP), as of January 2012, procuratorates across the country received 5,730 reports and clues on such cases and investigated over 5,000 cases.
In 2012, the procuratorates, or the state organs of legal supervision will continue the malpractice investigations with the focus on the cases involving education, employment, public health, food and drug safety, social security and the affordable housing programme, it said.
The campaign will also target cases of officials’ breach of duty that disturb market order as well as those of production and sale of counterfeit goods.
Moreover, malpractice involving illegal land acquisition and house demolition, production safety accidents, meddling in grassroots elections and other violations in the cultural sector will also be emphasised in this year’s campaign.
