The Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC) will soon send out its second batch of inspectors this year, top CPC disciplinary official Wang Qishan said in Beijing Wednesday.

The second round of inspections must focus on the exposing of problems and the deterring of corruption, said Wang, who heads the CPC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection as well as the CPC Central Committee's inspection leadership group.

The second batch of inspectors will be divided into 10 groups that will be sent to Xinhua News Agency, Ministry of Land and Resources, Ministry of Commerce, China Three Gorges Corporation, and the provinces of Shanxi, Jilin, Anhui, Hunan, Guangdong and Yunnan, Wang told the inspectors.

Wang noted that the first round of inspections that started in May have found clues of corruption and led to the stern punishment of wrongdoers, which has been welcomed by the people.

Wang urged the inspectors to be innovative in their work and particularly strengthen supervision over top officials of party organs and government departments.

He called for more "mobile and flexible" inspection methods in spot-checks of information submitted by officials, urging inspectors to dig deeper by gathering info from subordinates previously working with target officials.

Cases of disciplinary violations and crimes should be reported to the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection, the CPC's anti-graft agency, while misconduct in personnel management should be handed to the Organization Department of the CPC Central Committee, Wang said.

"However small, problems existing among the leading officials should be seized on as early as possible. Serious talks should be arranged with the officials in question and warn them to nip small problems in the bud," he added.

Wang stressed that charges of dereliction of duty may be levelled against inspectors if they fail to uncover major issues, and they may be justly accused of malfeasance if they fail to report them objectively.
