Nearly 2,000 officials have confessed their wrongdoings since China's disciplinary watchdog urged officials to own up to their misconduct on May 30, China's disciplinary watchdog confirmed on Thursday.

The Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) of the Communist Party of China issued a set of regulations targeting official corruption that took effect on May 30, urging officials who have traded power for money to confess their crimes before the end of June in return for leniency.

During the one-month period, 1,790 persons voluntarily reported their misconduct, involving 77.89 million yuan (10.2 million U.S. dollars), Gan Yisheng, CCDI spokesman, said at a press conference.

"Some of the officials have corrected their mistakes and some are still under investigation since we need check whether they have confessed all their wrongdoings," Gan said.

He did not provide details on the penalties that will be imposed on the officials who came forward of their own accord.

Gan said the regulations were useful since they laid the basis for the government to investigate cases involving violation of party discipline and they also provided an opportunity for those who had made mistakes to make corrections.

CCDI regulations have clearly stated government will show leniency to those who confess their wrongdoings by themselves within 30 days, he said.

Those who do not confess will be severely punished, he stressed, saying they have already got some clues for officials suspected of committing wrongdoings and will carry out further investigations.
