Officials who take gifts face tougher penalties

Government officials who accept gifts or money will face criminal charges and could go to jail if a draft amendment to the law comes into force, according to legal experts.

Chen Xingliang, a professor of criminal law at Peking University, said the measure is included in a draft amendment to the Criminal Law, which has undergone eight revisions since it was enacted in 1979.

The proposals would impose harsher penalties on officials who abuse their positions amid the continuing anti-graft campaign, he said.

Under the current rules, officials are charged with the criminal offense of bribery only if they accept money or gifts and use their official powers to benefit those who have provided the inducements. Officials are not charged with bribery if they accept money or gifts but do not provide assistance.

If the draft amendment is approved by the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress, the country's top legislative body, officials who accept money or gifts will be prosecuted even if they have not abused their powers to benefit others.

The NPC Standing Committee said in 2013 that it will revise the Criminal Law this year. Laws are usually revised at the committee's bimonthly sessions, during which members review drafts and vote on them.


Currently, officials who take gifts or money but do not use their powers to benefit others are punished under the Party's disciplinary rules, and face penalties such as removal from their posts, said Jiang Ming'an, a law professor at Peking University.

If the draft amendment is approved, officials who accept gifts or money will face tougher punishments such as imprisonment, Jiang said.

Some officials accept gifts or money during private events held by their families such as weddings, birthday parties and even funerals. This practice is banned under the Party's disciplinary rules but is not forbidden by law, he said.

Officials should accept gifts or money only from relatives; otherwise, they risk punishment in line with the laws and regulations, he added.

The Party's Central Committee has put forward a set of clean-governance rules, including requirements to lead a frugal life and cut public expenditure on government vehicles, receptions and overseas trips, since the new leadership was elected in November 2012.

A total of 30,420 government officials were punished by the disciplinary authorities last year for violating the rules, according to the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection of the Communist Party of China, the country's top anti-graft watchdog.
