Among them, more than 104 million yuan has not been actually obtained, which is an attempted crime.

The court sentenced Lai Xiaomin to death in the first instance.

  The fall of Lai Xiaomin, the "great financial corruption", also reflects the in-depth advancement of anti-corruption in the financial sector.

In 2020, the discipline inspection and supervision organs will resolutely investigate and deal with corruption in key areas such as resources, land, planning, construction, and engineering, which has formed a powerful deterrent effect.

  "Tiger Fighting" No Forbidden Zone: In 2020, the website of the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection and the State Supervision Commission announced the news that 18 central management cadres were under review and investigation: Zhang Zhinan, member of the Standing Committee of the Fujian Provincial Party Committee and Vice Governor of the Provincial Government, and Sun Lijun, member of the Party Committee and Vice Minister of the Ministry of Public Security, Li Jinzao, Deputy Secretary of the Party Leadership Group and Deputy Minister of the Ministry of Culture and Tourism, etc. have been dismissed one after another.

  Promote the "Three Nos" as a whole, do a good job in the review and investigation of the "second half of the article"

  On November 13, 2020, Beijing held a city-wide warning and education conference on "taking cases as a mirror and promoting reforms".

  The warning education films "Sword of Justice—Beijing’s Anti-Evil Special Fight Against Corruption Warning Record" and “Miscellaneous: Shunyi Series Corruption Case Warning Record” were broadcasted at the meeting, and were punished since the 2019 Warning Education Conference. 46 bureau-level cadres were named and exposed, and typical cases of outstanding problems in 8 areas were notified. More than 13,000 cadres at or above the post in Beijing received warnings and education.

Since 2017, the Beijing Municipal Party Committee has promoted the normalization and institutionalization of warning education, and has held a citywide warning education conference for 4 consecutive years.

  Advancing together is not only a basic policy in the fight against corruption, but also an important strategy for comprehensively and strictly governing the party in the new era.

Carrying out warning education and doing a good job in reviewing and investigating the "second half of the article" is a powerful way to promote the "three noes" together.

  In recent years, the discipline inspection and supervision agencies at all levels have continued to deepen both the symptoms and the root causes, establish and improve the mechanism for promoting reform with cases, and organically integrate case handling with plugging system loopholes and strengthening supervision and supervision——

  The Central Commission for Discipline Inspection and the State Supervision Commission established a system of "one case, one summary" for the duty crime cases of centrally-managed cadres to summarize experience, discover problems, learn lessons, and rectify and improve in a timely manner;

  Investigate the Chen Gang case to promote the rectification of problems in the area of ​​planning and natural resources in Beijing, investigate the cases of Yunguangzhong and Xing Yun to promote corruption in the coal resources field of Inner Mongolia, and investigate the case of Zhang Qi to promote Hainan's standardized land management;

  Focus on discovering deep-seated problems behind individual cases, put forward supervision suggestions on improving financial institution supervision and advancing judicial system reform, and promote the construction of a health emergency management system through supervision and accountability of epidemic prevention and control.

  Make full use of the policy strategies provided by the "four forms" to effectively dispose of the stock, strengthen supervision and contain the increase, and strengthen the daily management and supervision of cadres while severely punishing a very small number of serious violations of laws and regulations——

  According to statistics, from January to September 2020, the national discipline inspection and supervision agencies used the "four forms" to criticize, educate and assist and handle a total of 1.33 million people.

Among them, the use of the first form of criticism education helped 928,000 person-times, accounting for 69.8% of the total; the second form used to process 311,000 person-times, accounting for 23.4%; the third form was used to process 45,000 person-times, accounting for 3.4%; The fourth form handles 46,000 person-times, accounting for 3.5%.

  This data reflects that discipline inspection and supervision organs at all levels use the first form of criticism and education to help continue to increase, "red face sweating" has become the norm; the punishment of corruption as a strong backing for effective supervision, always maintain a high pressure situation to ensure the bottom line Always be there, the "back wall" is strong.

  In 2020, "voluntary surrender" has become a frequent word in case notifications.

  Inspired by strong deterrence and policy, a large number of cadres who violate discipline and law, including the Standing Committee of the Jiangsu Provincial Party Committee and Secretary of the Political and Legal Committee Wang Like, and Wen Guodong, Vice Governor of Qinghai Province, took the initiative to surrender, indicating that the anti-corruption high pressure situation continues to deter and the effectiveness of corruption governance continues Improve, and promote the results of not daring to rot, not wanting to rot, and not wanting to rot.

  Improve the legal system and promote the standardization and legalization of anti-corruption work

  On January 4, 2021, the full text of the newly revised Regulations on the Protection of the Rights of Party Members of the Communist Party of China was announced.

This is the party Central Committee’s amendment to the Regulations again since the 2004 Regulation was revised.

  The regulations stipulate that party members have the right to supervise within the party. It is clear that party members can carry out democratic supervision by criticizing, exposing, and reporting, and responsibly expose and report to the party organization any party organization and any party member’s violations of discipline and law, and propose handling and punishment of violations of discipline Illegal conduct is required by party organizations and party members.

  Those who are good at eliminating the harm will look at their roots, and those who are good at managing the disease will never be the source.

The fight against corruption must rely on thunder means on the one hand, and deepen reform and improve the system on the other.

  In January 2020, the General Office of the Central Committee issued the "Work Rules for Disciplinary Inspection and Supervision Organs for Handling Reports and Accusations."

The rules incorporate the concept of standardization and rule of law throughout the work of disciplinary inspection and supervision agencies in handling reports and accusations, requiring serious handling of reports and accusations, responding to public concerns, building a reporting platform that covers the disciplinary inspection and supervision system, encouraging real-name reporting, and establishing an inspection and supervision mechanism.

  On June 20, 2020, the 19th meeting of the Standing Committee of the 13th National People's Congress passed the "Law of the People's Republic of China on Administrative Sanctions for Public Officials."

  As the first national law to comprehensively and systematically regulate the administrative sanctions of public officials since the founding of New China, the Administrative Sanctions Law specifies the requirements for full coverage of supervision, clarifies the illegal circumstances in which public officials should be sanctioned by the government, and delimits the behavior of public officials. Promoting public officials to faithfully perform their duties under the Constitution and the law, while requiring that the power of administrative sanctions must be exercised in strict accordance with the law, and effectively putting the administrative sanctions in the cage of the system is an important guarantee for promoting the standardization and legalization of administrative sanctions.

  On December 22, 2020, the draft of the Law on Supervisors was submitted to the 24th meeting of the 13th National People's Congress for deliberation for the first time.

A series of laws and regulations in the field of discipline inspection and supervision are being introduced successively to ensure that anti-corruption work is on the track of standardization and rule of law.
