China’s Supreme People’s Procuratorate (SPP) on Wednesday (22 February 2012) launched a national anti-corruption campaign to safeguard the interests of rural residents. The two-year campaign will focus on the prosecution of crimes and prevention of offenses in agriculture and related sectors, according to Hu Zejun, executive deputy procurator-general of the SPP.
Hu urged his fellow procurators to help local authorities detect graft and bribery cases and institutional loopholes that could cause the loss of public funds.
