China’s People’s Liberation Army will improve its judicial rules as part of the nation’s continuing anti-corruption campaign until all graft is eradicated from the world’s biggest army, a logistics expert says. The crackdown, which had brought down many senior military officials, including the late Xu Caihou, former vice-chairman of the powerful Central Military Commission, and Gu Junshan, one-time deputy logistics chief, would continue, Xie Fan stressed. A number of people mistakenly believed the campaign was simply a “temporary” measure that would soon end, said Xie, an expert at the Military Economics Academy, an institution affiliated with the PLA's General Logistics Department, in an editorial today in the PLA Daily. “Some departments continue with illegal practices: they are reluctant to strictly enforce the law because the phenomenon of worshipping power – rather than having respect for the law – continues to exist. “We should be absolutely clear that the comprehensive anti-graft campaign is not something merely designed to sweep away corruption. “It will help to create a normal code of behaviour adopted by all personnel, which will form part of the massive, wholescale reform of the PLA. “The continuing crackdown against corruption is not something selective. It forms part of a legal reform process that knows no limit, or will accept no exceptions.” Xie’s article stressed that the PLA would spare no effort in establishing an innate sense of legal responsibility among all middle- and senior-ranked officers, so that “rule by law” was an accepted part of the nation’s military philosophy. The general logistics department, which controls most of the army’s resources, has been a hotbed of corruption in the past. Many of its former department heads have been investigated over suspicions that they were involved in graft since President Xi Jinping launched the anti-graft campaign two years ago. Former general Xu, whose death, at the age of 71, was reported on Sunday, was one of 16 senior PLA officials detained in the crackdown. The authorities have vowed to continue investigating his associates and pledged “zero tolerance” on corruption. Gu, a disgraced former PLA general, was taken into custody in January 2013. He is accused of amassing a huge personal fortune by buying and selling promotions while working in the logistics department.
