PLA, Armed Police back graft probe of Zhou
(07-31 12:58)

The Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) and Armed Police fully support the decision to investigate Zhou Yongkang, the latest and highest-ranking "tiger" in the anti-corruption campaign, a military newspaper said Thursday.
The Communist Party of China (CPC) announced on Tuesday an investigation into Zhou, a former Standing Committee member of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee, for suspected "serious disciplinary violations."
The decision reflects the CPC's political resolve to purify and reform itself, the PLA Daily said on its official microblog on Thursday.
Officers across the army support the investigation, as it shows the resolution of the CPC Central Committee to operate with strict discipline and on the principle that all people are equal under the law and regulations, the newspaper said.
There will be "no exceptions" and no leniency meted out, no matter who is involved in violating laws and regulations, it said.
China's top leadership has resolved to target both high-ranking "tigers" and low-ranking "flies" in the current anti-corruption efforts. The PLA and the Armed Police officers should always remain clear-minded and strictly observe discipline to guarantee a strong military.
Officers are reminded that Party members must resist the lure of power, money and beauty. Otherwise, ignoring discipline will eventually lead to crimes, the paper said. --Xinhua
