More than 1,000 “naked” officials have been caught and punished in an investigation in Guangdong province, Financial Times reported, citing Xinhua over the weekend. The term “naked official” refers to cadres whose spouses and children live overseas. Xinhua said 200 provincial employees had asked their families to return from overseas, while another 866 officials had agreed to accept demotions instead as punishment. Many top Communist Party members have sent their children to study in the West, sparking popular resentment towards a perceived privilege and hypocrisy. The campaign is the latest move in Xi’s on-going crackdown on graft and opulent spending.
