China's Red Cross briefs on scrutiny committee


09:26, December 11, 2012

BEIJING, Dec. 10 (Xinhua) -- The Red Cross Society of China (RCSC) on Monday held a press conference on its recent setting up of a special committee to supervise the collection and management of donations.

The move, announced by the RCSC on Saturday via its official microblog account on, is intended to improve transparency as the organization has come to suffer public mistrust.

The committee is composed of 16 members, including Chi Fulin, head of the China Institute for Reform and Development; Yu Keping, vice director of the Central Compilation & Translation Bureau; and Bai Yansong, a widely respected anchor and television commentator, according to information released from the press conference.

In selecting committee members, the RCSC has factored in a person's professional background, social reputation and public spirit. The professional backgrounds of the 16 members cover law, finance, medicine, mass communication, social management, and rescue work, according to the press conference.

Huang Weimin, partner of the Beijing-based Grandall Law Firm and secretary general of the RCSC's scrutiny committee, said the committee will supervise the use and management of donations, big projects implemented by the RCSC, and step in to investigate whenever the public raises suspicions over the RCSC's work.
