BEIJING - The top discipline watchdog of the Communist Party of China (CPC) on Friday named and shamed people in 116 cases of violating the Party's anti-corruption and frugality rules.

The violations, details of which were published on the website of the CPC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI), included bribery, illegal bonuses, applying for government subsidies with false information, embezzling office funds and abuse of power.

In one case, an official in north China's Hebei Province was expelled from the Party and public office for deliberately making human resources approvals difficult for applicants by refusing to handle application materials submitted 10 times in a row, suggesting a request for gifts and money.

Offenders received punishments ranging from official warnings, demotion, and expulsion from the CPC to removal from office. Cases involving criminal liability have been transferred to judicial organs. Some officials have also received jail terms.

The CCDI has been publishing such violations monthly in a bid to deter officials and correct undesirable work styles.
