2015-04-10 "Sky Net": Foreign Countries No Haven for China's Corrupt Officials
   2015-04-10 09:48:41    CRIENGLISH.com      Web Editor: Ding Heng

China's anti-corruption is taking a step further. A campaign named "Sky Net", which aimed at hunting down more corrupt officials that have fled overseas, officially started two weeks ago.

Many different forces will be involved in the campaign, not only Ministry of Public Security and the top procuratorate, but also the central bank and the Organization Department of Communist Party of China Central Committee. The participation of the latter two organs means more careful checks on offshore bank accounts and cadres' travel documents. Regional authorities where most of the fugitive officials had previously served will also be mobilized.

This is an upgraded version of China's "fox hunt 2014" which led to detention and surrender of 680 overseas fugitives in the second half of 2014.

China alone, however, is by no means able to handle everything. Effective cooperation with the international community is a precondition for bringing any runaway official to justice.

So, why does China's anti-corruption need to go overseas at this point? What cooperative models can China explore with other countries in this regard?

Ni Hao, you're listening to People In the Know, presenting you with insights into the headlines in China, and around the world, I'm Zheng Chenguang in Beijing.

People in the Know's Ding Heng speaks to Professor Augusto Soto, a distinguished China watcher in Spain and Director of Dialogue with China Project, an independent electronic platform based in Barcelona, and Professor Yao Shujie from School of Contemporary Chinese Studies, University of Nottingham in the UK.
