China is leading an anti corruption campaign in the Asia continent with hundreds of top government officials facing trial.
China Central Commission for Discipline Inspection has  investigated 440 officials for corruption in the past five years.
Yang Xiaodu, Deputy Secretary of the CCDI said at a news conference on the sidelines of the 19th CPC National Congress: “among the officials who are at or above provincial or corps level are 43 members and alternate members of the CPC Central Committee.
“Others are nine members of the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI), were investigated.’’
Five years ago, the CPC leadership launched a high-profile anti-corruption campaign, which has led to the downfall of a number of high-level officials, known as “tigers,” and lower-level “flies” who serve at the grassroots level.
Among the “tigers” felled in the campaign were Zhou Yongkang, Bo Xilai, Guo Boxiong, Xu Caihou, Sun Zhengcai and Ling Jihua.
Yang said more than 8,900 city level officials and over 63,000 county level officials were punished during that period.
A total of 278,000 grassroots Party members and officials were also punished, he said.
“China is working with the international community to hunt corruption suspects who had fled overseas, leading to the capture of 3,453 fugitives.
 
“Among the top 100 fugitives listed on an Interpol red notice, 48 have been arrested,’’ Yang said.
