A documentary produced by the Chinese Communist Party’s top anti-corruption watchdog Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) has offered a glimpse of the luxurious lifestyle of disgraced former Guangzhou party secretary Wan Qingliang. The last of four documentary programmes aired last night – focusing on President Xi Jinping’s anti-corruption campaign – featured the lavish clubs Wan visited before his fall after graft allegations involving “serious violations of discipline” were confirmed. The club in Guangzhou’s Baiyun district, has one luxuriously decorated room with a terrace large enough to accommodate 18 guests, Beijing Youth Daily reports. The CCDI and China Central Television jointly produced the documentary as part of the party’s efforts to promote it “eight rules on official behaviour”. Since May the party has banned its members from visiting private clubs or becoming members of exclusive restaurants, fitness centres and entertainment venues, Xinhua, the state-run news agency, reported. Xinhua said many luxury clubs are set up in public parks or even cultural heritage sites. The Imperial Court Club, for example, is located inside a 270-year-old building at Beihai Park, one of the capital’s best-preserved Imperial gardens. Wan was removed from his post in the end of June, and officially banished from the party, Xinhua said. He formerly held a vice-ministerial rank and was the top official in Guangzhou, the capital of the southern province of Guangdong, which neighbours Hong Kong. Wan was once considered a rising star in the party because he held such a senior political position while still in his early 50s. He was part of the Guangdong Communist Youth League, the power base of former president Hu Jintao. However, Wan came under fire soon after he took up the Guangzhou post in 2011, when he suggested that housing prices were too low. He told mainland media at the time that his monthly rent for a luxury flat was only 600 yuan (HK$750), despite the market price being five times that. Wan joined a list of officials in Guangdong, including Cao Jianliao, former vice-mayor of Guangzhou, who have been caught up in the anti-graft campaign launched since Xi took office in 2012.
