The top discipline watchdog of the Communist Party of China (CPC) on Friday named officials penalized for failing to properly tackle the wrongdoings of subordinates.

According to the website of the CPC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI), a number of officials have received punishments, including official warnings, removal from office, or reduction in benefits, for improperly handling their subordinates' violations of the law and of the Party's code of conducts.

The violations publicized included bribery, embezzlement, travel at public expenses, and gift giving with public money, among others.

In a notice, the CCDI urged leading officials at various levels to perform their duties in strictly governing the Party, while calling for strengthening oversight over Party members and cadres, and resolutely punishing wrongdoings of any kind.
