Communist Party seeks to reform its 'shuanggui' anti-corruption investigations

The Communist Party is considering scaling down the system of secret interrogations and detentions it uses to root out corruption in its ranks. The nation’s top prosecutions body invited several anti-corruption experts to give advice on reform of the shuanggui interrogation system on the same day the party’s top leaders finished their third plenum meeting that mapped out a series of political and economic reforms.
