China Says Corruption Campaign has Gained 'Crushing Momentum'

Dec 29 , 2016

China's fight against corruption has gained "crushing momentum" and huge progress has been achieved, with no let up expected next year, the ruling Communist Party said.

Since assuming office four years ago, President Xi Jinping has waged war on deep-seated graft, warning like others before him that the problem is so bad it could affect the party's grip on power.

Dozens of senior people have been jailed, including Zhou Yongkang, who was once China's powerful domestic security chief, given a life sentence for corruption last year.

"The battle against corruption has gained crushing momentum," state news agency Xinhua said late on Wednesday, in a report on a meeting of the party's Politburo chaired by Xi.
