Updated: 2005-01-14 09:04

China's top anti-graft agency has vowed to impose heavy penalties on corrupt officials in the latest attempt to curb corruption.

The CPC Central Disciplinary Inspection Commission said the government and Party officials would be fired if they were found accepting bribes, using their power to help family members to run businesses or gambling, according to a bulletin released after the meeting.

Officials who obtain promotions by bribing their superiors would be removed from their positions, said the bulletin.

The bulletin also vowed to severely punish officials who accept expensive gifts at weddings or funerals.
