Writing at The Beijing News today, lawyer Liu Changsong (刘昌松) explores the case of Yang Ye (杨烨), the daughter of the Party secretary of Shanxi's Jingle County (静乐县), Yang Cunhu (杨存虎). Chinese media reported this week that Yang Ye has been paid more than 100,000 yuan over five years as an "administrator" for the province's Center for Disease Control while studying full time at the Shanxi College of Traditional Chinese Medicine. In addition to her salary and benefits, Yang's tuition has been paid by the Center for Disease Control, media reported. Authorities in Shanxi responded to these revelations by formally issuing Yang Cunhu with a warning. In his commentary for The Beijing News, Liu Changsong argues that that Yang should be held criminally responsible for his actions, and that simple fines and warnings are not sufficient to discourage such conduct. In this case, of course, there is the further question -- one Liu does not address -- of what provincial-level officials were complicit.

Taking the huge banner headline today at the Xinhua News Agency website is an editorial from People's Daily about the recent investigation of three top officials involved in Chinese national football. China Central Television reported yesterday that the Public Security Bureau has formally filed cases for investigation and prosecution (立案侦查) against three former top Chinese soccer officials, who are accused of bribery and betting scams. The three officials include Xie Yalong (谢亚龙), former director of the China Football Association, former national football manager Yu Shaohui (蔚少辉), and Li Dongsheng (李冬生), former head of the Referees Committee of the China Football Association. Today's People's Daily editorial reads: "We hope that official departments responsible for national football can actively learn from this, assisting with this wind of anti-corruption action in the football world, and truly building an effective system suited to the development of Chinese football."
