BEIJING, March 1 (Xinhua) -- China's top procuratorate vowed on Saturday to hunt down corruption in monopolized industries, including railway, power, petrol and telecommunications.
According to a statement issued by the Supreme People's Procuratorate (SPP), anti corruption efforts will also target construction, real estate projects and land resources management, among other areas.
The SPP also released the number of power abuse and dereliction of duty cases handled from January to November last year. A total of 8,959 cases were handled, involving 12,672 people.
Among them, 5,036 cases were serious, an increase of 24 percent year on year.
The SPP said it has been carrying out the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee's requirements to fight both "tigers" and "flies". It cracked major cases, including the ones of former secretary of the Chongqing Municipal Committee of the CPC Bo Xilai and former railways minister Liu Zhijun.
