Recently, the Disciplinary and Supervision Commission of Yibin City, Sichuan Province publicly announced 5 typical cases of corruption in the field of grain purchase and sales.

Among them, there are those who take advantage of their positions to provide assistance and support to relevant enterprises and individuals in grain auctions, bidding, signing of grain purchase and sales contracts, payment of funds, and other grain purchase and sales matters; there are also those who take advantage of their positions to undertake grain purchase and sales business. Those who provide assistance to relevant enterprises in terms of purchasing prices, etc.; and those who fabricate the facts of farmers selling grain, forge grain purchase vouchers, and obtain funds for grain purchases.

In the end, the relevant responsible persons were punished by the corresponding party discipline and government affairs.

  Food security is the "bigger of the country".

Corruption problems such as "relying on grain for food" seriously damage the vital interests of the people and endanger national food security.

In the special rectification of corruption in the grain-related field, a group of "grain rats" were sacked.

  The reporter combed a number of relevant corruption cases and found that the people involved in the corruption issue in the grain field were mostly grass-roots staff, including the person in charge of the grain station, accountants, and warehousing personnel.

They use various "obfuscation methods" to obtain funds, seek illegitimate interests and damage the political ecology of the food system, but also expose many loopholes in grass-roots grain supervision.

  In December 2021, the Anhui Provincial Commission for Discipline Inspection and Supervision announced that Jiang Li, manager of the Shiji Branch of Anfeng Town Cereals and Oils Co., Ltd. in Shou County, was under supervision and investigation for suspected serious violations of the law.

  During the investigation of Shiji Branch, the investigators found that the company had a total of 7 staff and 4 persons involved in the case.

Manager Jiang Li, accountant Shuli, warehouse storage team leader Fang Xinming, and warehouse storage clerk Li Tao, whether they conspired to sell the surplus grain from the warehouse or set up a "small treasury" privately, were all gang crimes.

  In some places, corruption in the grain-related field at the grassroots level has the characteristics of being case-based, and the people involved take advantage of their positions to facilitate cooperation, and some grain stations are even "annihilated."

  In recent years, the Commission for Discipline Inspection and Supervision of Zhangzhou City, Fujian Province has taken the lead in investigating and handling a series of illegal cases in the city's grain storage system.

Among them, in the case of Xie Moumin, the former deputy director of the Grain Bureau of Changshan Overseas Chinese Economic Development Zone and the former director of the Grain Management Center, Xie Moumin actively solicited and bought accountants, cashiers, warehouse managers, etc., and obtained embezzled financial subsidy funds and privately point.

After tasting the sweetness, Xie Moumin and others cooperated more closely, committing crimes almost every year and grabbing them wantonly. In the end, all seven staff members of the Grain Management Center were involved in the crime, and the time span of committing crimes was as long as 17 years.

  The reason for this is that the excessive concentration of power has become the breeding ground for fraudulent cases.

The person in charge of the grain station has real power. In the case of poor food safety management systems in some localities, the grassroots "top commander" has too much authority and the cost of breaking the law is too low. astray.

  From the perspective of corruption methods, in order to avoid supervision, the persons involved in the case did everything possible to use various "obfuscation methods" to rack their brains and make money.

  In the collective corruption case of the Shiji Branch of Anfeng Town Grain and Oil Co., Ltd., there are three main "obfuscation methods": one is to arbitrarily obtain policy grain funds. Weighing back and forth, repeating weighing, falsely reporting grain receipts, etc. to obtain the national policy grain purchase funds; the second is to withhold the loading and unloading fees of stevedores. A total of more than 60,000 yuan was withheld for the work and transportation fees; the third was to secretly sell the surplus rice from the warehouse. Jiang Li and others accepted bribes from the grain sellers during the grain purchase process, and reduced the weight of the grain, moisture and impurities during the grain collection process.

  The reason why these "obfuscation methods" are effective is that, on the one hand, the principal leaders of some grass-roots grain enterprises and personnel in important positions have a weak sense of discipline and law, their selfish desires are inflated, and their greed for money makes them take desperate risks.

On the other hand, some grain supervisory units have weak supervisory power, weak supervisory system, and floating work style, etc., which has led to the oversight of ineffectiveness and the proliferation of the problem of "relying on grain for food".

  The Sixth Plenary Session of the 19th Central Commission for Discipline Inspection called for deepening the special rectification of corruption in the fields of grain purchase and sales, and to make arrangements for further punishing grain-related corruption and work style issues.

  The back wall is stable, and the deterrence is always there.

Disciplinary inspection and supervision organs at all levels have always maintained a high-pressure posture, dealt with grain-related corruption and unhealthy practices severely, and investigated the daring and insatiable granary "big rats" to the end, and will never tolerate them.

  Since last year, the Henan Provincial Disciplinary Inspection and Supervision Organ has carried out in-depth special rectification of corruption in the field of grain purchase and sales, and has carried out extensive investigations on various clues and cases of related problems in recent years. Scrutinize clues about grain corruption.

Since the special rectification, the province's discipline inspection and supervision organs have investigated 1,489 clues and filed 399 cases.

  The special rectification focuses on "punishment," the key lies in "reform," and the core lies in "governance."

  After the corruption case of Shiji Branch of Anfeng Town Cereals and Oils Co., Ltd. was investigated and dealt with, the Commission for Discipline Inspection and Supervision of Shou County, Anhui Province issued a disciplinary inspection and supervision proposal to the County Development and Reform Commission (Grain and Material Reserve Bureau), requesting the County Development and Reform Commission (grain and Material Reserve Bureau) Revision and improvement of relevant rules and regulations, so far, 4 perfect systems have been established.

At the same time, the Shou County Commission for Discipline Inspection and Supervision announced the exposure of typical cases of corruption in the field of grain purchase and sales. Case promotion.

  In response to the institutional loopholes exposed by a series of cases in the grain storage system, the Zhangzhou Municipal Commission for Discipline Inspection and Supervision has urged the grain authorities to clarify the purchase and sale process of policy grains, especially grain reserves, through leadership and supervision, formulation and issuance of disciplinary inspection and supervision proposals, and special supervision. , Strictly examine and approve the qualifications of grain industry operators, standardize bidding procedures, effectively strengthen policy-based grain transaction price monitoring, promote the establishment of a grain industry credit system and the disclosure of negative information, provide a healthy competitive market for grain circulation, and ensure that national policy-based grain policies are implemented in place. .

  "To strengthen the governance of problems in the grain industry, we must focus on strengthening the restriction and supervision of the operation of power, improve the system, strengthen supervision, and promote the continuous improvement of the political ecology of the grain industry." The person in charge of the Zhangzhou Municipal Commission for Discipline Inspection and Supervision said.
