BEIJING, Dec. 26 (Xinhua) -- A total of 2,349 officials with the Communist Party of China (CPC) were found to have illegally possessed or traded affordable houses this year, according to Party and government authorities.

The violations by these officials involved 6,398 sets of houses that were built for low-income groups, said a statement jointly released Monday by the Ministry of Supervision and the CPC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection.

The statement didn't reveal how these officials have been punished.

Meanwhile, some 44,150 Party officials voluntarily handed in 386 million yuan (61 million U.S. dollars) in goods and money that were sent to them in bribery attempts, said the statement.

To gear the property market toward healthy development, China has begun the construction of affordable housing units, aiming to build 36 million subsidized housing units by 2015.
