  "In the past two days, I have seen a report from the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region Committee of the Communist Party of China to the Party Central Committee, which is the "Report on the Special Rectification of Illegal Issues in the Field of Coal Resources." Inner Mongolia has a very important area of ​​anti-corruption, namely coal Field.” On March 5, General Secretary Xi Jinping emphasized when participating in the deliberations of the Inner Mongolia delegation, “Being an official of the Communist Party and a public servant of the people, using national resources to engage in bribery, power and money transactions, this account is always To be counted."

  Coal has special significance for Inner Mongolia.

The Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region is home to the world's largest open-pit coal mine. 11 of the 12 league cities in the region have coal mines. It is the province with the largest coal production in the country.

According to statistics, Inner Mongolia's raw coal output in 2019 reached 1.035 billion tons, accounting for 27.6% of the national output.

The period from 2000 to 2010 was the golden decade of rapid development of my country's coal industry and the decade of rapid economic growth in the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, with an average annual GDP growth rate of 18%.

  However, with the rapid development of the coal economy, violations of regulations and laws in the coal resources sector in Inner Mongolia have continued to breed and spread, and coal-related corruption has become the biggest “cancer” in the local political ecology.

A small number of party members and cadres, together with unscrupulous businessmen, use coal resources as "Tang monk meat" and "cash machine", making a big effort to gain power and use power for personal gain.

For example, some leading cadres have taken state-owned coal mines as their own through enterprise restructuring and other methods, and grabbed huge profits; some used power, "I approve coal at the front desk and make money behind my children"; and some used resources as a bargaining chip to take advantage of the opportunity. Engage in clinging, "mounting antennas", consolidating power, seeking promotion, and so on.

Since 2018, of the 5 central management cadres in the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region that have been investigated and dealt with by the State Supervision Commission of the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection, 4 of them are involved in corruption issues closely related to coal.

  Wujin Mengmu must strike hard.

The State Supervision Commission of the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection conducted an in-depth analysis of a series of coal-related corruption cases in Inner Mongolia, pointed out the outstanding problems in the coal resources field, and put forward specific disciplinary inspection and supervision recommendations.

The Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region is determined to scrape the bones to cure drugs, and eliminate the long-standing drawbacks of "relying on coal to eat coal".

The autonomous region has successively set up more than 40 special working groups to "check 20 years" of coal-related violations and violations, and to implement all planning projects, investment reviews, resource allocation, environmental review and review, and mining rights approval submissions, equity changes, and all coal mine projects since 2000. In all aspects of mineral transactions, the status of coal mining enterprises and coal-related coal blending projects, legal person status, processing time, approval procedures, policy basis, etc. are all checked. One mine, one file, and one mine are cleared.

Comprehensively rectify the violations and violations of coal-related regulations and laws by all public officials in party and government agencies, institutions, and state-owned enterprises at all levels in the region since 2000, focusing on rectification of coal-related violations and violations of coal-related regulations and laws by personnel working in important positions and related to coal resource management problem.

  Up to now, the discipline inspection and supervision organs at all levels in Inner Mongolia have registered a total of 960 coal-related corruption cases of 676 cases, including 61 officials at the department and bureau level and 216 officials at the county and department level; 663 people were punished for party discipline and government affairs, and 834 people were organized and dealt with. , 92 people were transferred to judicial organs.

At the same time, they investigated and dealt with hundreds of serious political and ecological problems such as using coal resources for clinging and antennas.

A few days ago, the Commission for Discipline Inspection and Supervision of the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region held a press conference to announce the release of the “Ten Key Words” of the anti-corruption campaign in 2020. Among them, the “20-year back investigation” of corruption in the coal resources sector ranked first on the list.

  While punishing coal-related corruption issues, the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region has also comprehensively cleaned up the coal resources policies and regulations issued by various departments at all levels since 2000, supervised coal-related regions, departments, and enterprises to strengthen the system construction, and promote the coal resources approval system Reform, focus on eliminating power rent-seeking space.

  According to the relevant responsible comrades of the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region Commission for Discipline Inspection and Supervision, the special rectification action has achieved significant phased results.

The spread of coal-related corruption has been effectively curbed. Inspired by the policy, 12 officials at the department and division level took the initiative to surrender.

The recovery of economic losses was 39.327 billion yuan.

A total of more than 1.4 million cadres in the region have filled in the declarations related to coal, and they have done all they should be reported. From now on, all cadres in the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region will have a case to be investigated as long as they are involved in coal. Anyone who gains improper profits in the coal field will be held accountable , Which fundamentally blocked the adverse effects of the coal field problem in the political ecology field.
