An impersonator claiming to be a graft-inspector from the Central Commission of Discipline Inspection tricked his way into appearing in a newspaper run by the supreme prosecutor. A Wechat account affiliated with the CCDI on Tuesday warned the public to beware of fake graft-busters, adding that even the Procuratorial Daily, a mouthpiece of the country’s top prosecutor’s office, had been fooled. A report by the newspaper last Friday quoted a man going by the name of Dong Enhou, who was ostensibly an inspector at the CCDI. The man had been sat alongside officials from the propaganda department and the top prosecutor’s office at a symposium to discuss an upcoming film about corruption. “The movie has reflected real problems. Some departments don’t carry out the rules systematically and there is a power-money exchange. There are real lessons like this,” it quoted Dong as saying. The symposium was held on October 31 and hosted by jcrb.com, which comes under the state-run Procuratorial Daily.

Following the Wechat post the Daily admitted on Weibo that Dong Enhou must have been a false identity, and said it would conduct an investigation. President Xi Jinping has directed a sweeping anti-graft campaign since he took power, significantly raising the profile of the CCDI. However, the anti-graft watchdog has remained shrouded in mystery. It works independently from other law enforcement departments, sometimes bypassing local governments when its inspectors hunt down senior officials. There is very limited information about the way the department works. The movie has reflected real problems. Some departments don’t carry out the rules systematically and there is a power-money exchange. There are real lessons like this Bogus inspector Dong Enhou And the party has been cautious about releasing information about corrupt cadres. Dong Enhou is not the first fake CCDI officer. A man in Beijing was put on trial for fraud in August, having allegedly set up a fake CCDI website and taken bribes in return for helping people find jobs within the civil service. The sentence is yet to be announced. The Wechat account said CCDI officials usually needed to be contacted via official channels with an official letter, as they needed approval from their office before attending events. The account has previously filed original articles on the anti-graft campaign that have later been published officially by the CCDI. In an interview with Shanghai-based news portal thepaper.cn, the man that runs the Wechat account said he was with the propaganda branch of the CCDI.
