The Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) established a leading group Thursday, for the auditing of leading officers in the army, according to a decision made by the Central Military Commission (CMC).

About 1,000 leading officers, including more than 100 at army and divisional levels, will be audited this year, according to sources with the PLA headquarters.

One of the major tasks of the group is to curb corruption in a systematic way and ensure the officers to use their rights correctly, the sources said.

The members of the leading group come from the PLA's four general departments, respectively responsible for general staff, politics, logistics and armament.
