BEIJING, Sept. 12-- The anti-graft agency of the Communist Party of China (CPC) will report corruption cases in a timely manner on its new website and will possibly open a microblog amid efforts for transparency, an official said Thursday.
The Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) of the CPC and the Ministry of Supervision jointly opened the official website, www.ccdi.gov.cn, on Sept. 2. for better communication and interaction with the public.
The website consists of ten sections, including an online forum where the public can leave their opinions and proposals as well as ask questions about anti-corruption work. There is also a section for tip-offs about corruption cases. The website will publish latest information of important meetings, campaigns and investigations of graft.
A section of the website will report cases being investigated by disciplinary authorities of all levels, especially serious ones handled by the CCDI's supervision department, said Cui Shaopeng, general secretary of the commission.
Cui made the comments during an online interview on the website.
The website is smart phone and tablet friendly. Mobile application services will be introduced so the public can get access more easily, said Cui.
"The website is preparing to open an official microblog and Wechat service (a social networking platform) when the situation is ripe," he said.
The website will carry interviews following the supervision department's key work or if there are public concerns. The department's senior officials, members of the CPC Central Committee and experts will be invited for the interviews, he added.
As the only official website of the CCDI's supervision department, it will not carry any advertising or seek sponsors. Also, there are no branches in local areas.
"It has been reported that some fake journalists or websites are operating illegally under the name of our website," Cui said. "We welcome netizens reporting such behaviors and we will investigate the cases."
