The Liberation Army Daily, a newspaper owned by China’s military, warned officers to remain “most loyal” defenders of the Chinese Communist Party following a possible corruption probe among its top tanks, Reuters reported. “Hostile international forces have not slackened in their strategic plotting to Westernize and divide us,” said an editorial in the paper, commenting on some officers who it claims have “wavered” in their loyalty. While no public announcement has been made, Lieutenant General Gu Junsha, former head of the Bureau of Capital Construction and Barracks under the Logistics Department, is said to be under investigation for corruption. Sources also say that the investigation has run up against foot-dragging within the PLA ranks. “In recent years, there have been some cases of disciplinary violations in the military that have left painful lessons and a profound warning,” said the editorial. “We must defend the bottom-line of incorruptibility and purity.”
