Q: Where are highly-touted but invisible "Corruption Watchdogs" of China?

In 2009 Premier Wen Jiabao announced the formation of a corruption anti-task-force that would "hunt down and expose government corruption - wherever it may be found" and told the people would have "unhindered access" to report corruption to this new entity. So now my questions are:

 

1)  Where is the specific address of the anti-corruption task force?

2)  Who is the Executive Director of the anti-corruption task force? 

3)  What is the email to report corruption to this anti-corruption task force?

4)  What is the web site for this anti-corruption task force?

5)  Since 2009, how many corruption cases were prosecuted by this task force and what were the results?

 

The reason I ask is because a good friend of mine just stumbled upon a $3Billion fraud involving one or two mid- level officials and there appears to be no place to report the crime. Even the local police had no knowledge where to report the white collar crime that will eventually affect the health of about 80 million Chinese citizens - on the same scale as the milk scandal.

Hope your friend doesn't end up like that British guy a few years back.  And I think the Anti-corruption task force was an inside joke, lol.  The Chinese have so much corruption, a task force like that would be working 24/7 for the rest of their lives to prosecute crimes.

Wait...here it comes! I'm sure the correct answer will be mysteriously posted in time to plug the not so mysterious website! Looking forward to the "revelation."

What a coincidence,I was speaking to two of them at lunch today.   A couple of finer people you'd ever wish to meet.   Unfortunately I can't tell you who they are or where they are, (it's a State Secret you know) but they assured me that they are trying to do their jobs as best they can.   They did ask me a few questions about you, I just told them that I couldn't remember (getting senile you know) who you are.

  I don't personally believe in any truly effective group of corruption watchdogs in China or anywhere else. Under our current system (the monetary system) corruption seems unavoidable.

I guess this means nobody knows about where to find this agency, ministry or bureau?

My God dude - wake up and smell the cesspool!   Your "task force" is invisible by design. If people actually knew how to contact them, they would be flooded in complaints and would actually have to work for a living.  And since shit always rolls downhill, what would this task-force do when they follow the tracks off these huge balls of shit back up the hill? Didn't you see what happened to Bo?

I agree with the dog  named Snoopy. The LAST thing this government wants is someone monitoring how they really make a living.  They don't even share the crumbs for god sakes!  I've never seen such greedy bastards in my entire life.

Being murdered by the people they're investigating. There was a corruption investigator who was chasing after a judge. He got stabbed 10+ times and that same judge ruled it a suicide. Truth.

They are all working overtime I'm sure.  I think there is enough corruption in China to fill a 3,000 page newspaper with articles for a year.

I think with the recent NY Times revelation about the $2.7Billion in assets accumulated by the Premier's family, this question may either become moot or even more pertinent - depending on whose asking - and who is reading it!

Well as Frank just pointed out, all the corruption watchdogs are too busy exporting their cash out of the country to be bothered with trivial shit right now!

I think you should write a letter to Premier Wen and ask him directly!  I'd love to know if you get a reply.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
