Chapter Summary

This chapter will discuss the corruption problem in China on the basis of the definition given in the legal field. A number of surveys conducted locally have also demonstrated that corruption is the most serious social problem facing China today. Some may argue that an authoritarian regime can also curb corruption effectively and that there is no inherent correlation between democracy and corruption. The amended Criminal Procedure Law is the main legal basis for this. According to the plan, the audit system focuses on two things: (1) an investigation to determine whether or no. the official has ever violated the country's financial regulations and rules; and (2) an attempt to establish whether or no. the official has fulfilled his/her duties. Law is useful in deterring and controlling corruption, but it is not a panacea. The real victory against corruption lies in effecting further political reforms.
