300,000 Chinese officials 'punished for corruption' last year

China punished almost 300,000 officials for graft last year as President Xi Jinping continued to wage a high-profile war against corruption. Among those ensnared by the wide-ranging crackdown were 200,000 who were given “light disciplinary punishments” and another 82,000 who were handed “severe disciplinary punishments and major demotions”. Ten “centrally appointed and administered officials” were given “drastic demotions” for serious violations against the Communist Party’s code of conduct, according to the report from Xinhua
