China to audit military officials in move to fight graft
BEIJING (REUTERS) - Chinese military officials will have to undergo an audit before they can retire or be promoted, state media reported on Tuesday, in the latest measure in the leadership's campaign against corruption.
The audit will encompass officials' "real estate property, their use of power, official cars and service personnel", the Xinhua news agency reported, citing a guideline issued by the Central Military Commission.
The guideline aims to improve the "work style" of military officials and fight against graft, the report said.
President Xi Jinping has called corruption a threat to the Communist Party's very survival, and vowed to go after powerful"tigers" as well as lowly "flies".
