China’s disciplinary watchdogs have opened a national website to solicit public help in exposing violations of discipline by Party organizations and members. It also calls for public suggestions to combat corruption.
Citizens throughout China can send complaints through the website, which has 31 portals for citizens in different places.
There are also plans to establish websites at city and county levels to build a nationwide reporting system.
Since 2005, local supervision and discipline departments began setting up informant websites which have handled a large number of public complaints and helped relevant departments uncover valuable information.
On June 26 last year, the Ministry of Supervision Ministry opened an informant hotline “12388” for people to report public servants and officials for disciplinary violations.
The national prosecutor’s informant website crashed on the opening day of June 22 this year, as tens of thousands of residents tried to report corruption.
Shenzhen Daily says the new website was launched by the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection of the Communist Party of China (CPC) and the Ministry of Supervision.
