The People’s Liberation Army has uncovered that its personnel “illicitly” kept more than 8,000 apartments and 25,000 vehicles, Reuters reported, citing the official Xinhua News Agency. China stepped up a crackdown on military corruption in the late 1990s, banning the PLA from engaging in business. But graft has intensified in recent years due to a lack of transparency and checks and balances. “Various PLA units have promised to return illegal housing and eliminate secretaries that were not allowed; they have also vowed to strictly regulate the use of military vehicles,” Xinhua said. No punishment was mentioned in the report.
