A CPC official on Tuesday for the first time explained a Chinese anti-corruption term, translated as "double designations", which is used to question Party members being investigated for violating Party discipline.
Gan Yisheng, secretary-general of the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection of the CPC said at a press conference that "double designations" means Party members are requested to attend questioning sessions at a designated place and for a designated duration.
Gan said there are stringent regulations governing "double designation" procedures which must be pre-approved. Corporal punishment is banned and Party member's dignity must be respected throughout the questioning.
During "double designations", the relevant Party members are still regarded as a comrade, as they have not proven to have violated laws, he said.
