BEIJING, Aug. 11 (Xinhua) -- The disciplinary watchdog of the Communist Party of China (CPC) uncovered 154 breaches of anti-bureaucracy and formalism guidelines from Aug. 4 to 10.
The cases were reported by graft busters in more than 20 provincial regions, the CPC's Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) said in a weekly report on its website on Sunday.
Violations of the guidelines were also found at Xinjiang Production and Construction Corps, the Ministry of Transport, and the PICC Property and Casualty Company Limited, a major Chinese insurer.
The violations include the use of public funds for moon cakes or shopping cards, private use of official cars, breaches of workplace rules, embezzlement of public funds, holding extravagant wedding ceremonies and accepting monetary gifts at weddings.
Violators were named and given penalties ranging from Party warnings, administrative demerits, probation within the Party, demotion to removal from posts. Those who used public vehicles for private purposes were ordered to pay for their trips, according to the report.
The "eight-point" anti-bureaucracy and formalism rules were introduced by the CPC top leadership in December 2012. They ordered CPC officials to reduce pomp, ceremony, bureaucratic visits and meetings.
On April 8, the CCDI launched a new section on its website inviting the public to report cases of corruption and misconduct.
