The Chinese military has set up a hotline and a mailbox for people to report corruption and other misconduct, according to the Discipline Inspection Commission under the Central Military Commission.

The hotline uses two landline telephone numbers and two mobile phone numbers. Those who want to appeal against a disciplinary decision can also call the hotline or send a letter to the mailbox.

The move is the latest step President Xi Jinping, also chairman of the Central Military Commission, has taken since he took office in Nov 2012 to tackle the once rampant corruption within the People’s Liberation Army.

Over the past three years, nearly 50 senior officers of the PLA and the Armed Police Force have been convicted or investigated for corruption allegations.

The Central Military Commission's Discipline Inspection Commission was established in January to replace the old anti-graft body that was administered by the former PLA General Political Department.
