A senior anti-graft official in South China's Guangdong province on Monday warned of the serious consequences caused by corruption involving village heads and their subordinates.

Cases of village-level corruption, some involving big sums of money, have occurred in Guangdong in recent years, and have led to protests and mass incidents, Wang Xingning, secretary-general of the Guangdong Provincial Commission for Discipline Inspection of the Communist Party of China, said, reviewing the province's anti-graft work over the past five years.

Since 2007, discipline authorities have investigated 7,790 cases involving rural resources, capital and assets, involving 8,121 rural officials, Wang said. All these officials have received disciplinary, administrative or judicial punishment.
