SCMP says in its report “Corrupt Chinese official ‘demands aircraft in return for favours’” today, “A deputy mayor in Shanxi took 644 million yuan (HK$767 million) in bribes – more than the combined fiscal income of the province’s nine poorest counties, Shanxi’s Communist Party chief said on Sunday.”

According to SCMP, the Party chief gave other vivid details of three corrupt officials in the province and describes graft as the “malicious tumour” that severely hindered economic development.

He said the anti-corruption campaign could help to get rid of these “black sheep”.

SCMP says that in one case an “official also asked 12 companies to chip in to buy a 390 million yuan aircraft for personal use.”

    In Buddhism the three Karma of Greed, Anger and Delusion (ignorance & arrogance) are inherent in living beings with varying capacities. Greed being the Root of all Evil giving rise to excessiveness, anger, ignorance and arrogance. Government officials since ancient times should be severely punish for Corruption. The monies and properties are taxpayers payment and government property.
