BEIJING -- The Discipline Inspection Commission under the Central Military Commission (CMC) has opened hotlines and a special mailbox for tip-offs of disciplinary violations in the military as an anti-corruption effort.

Soldiers and officers, as well as the public, are encouraged to report military personnel violating Communist Party of China (CPC) and the People's Liberation Army (PLA) discipline through the new channels.

Meanwhile, Party members and officials in the military who do not accept the punishments given for Party and military disciplinary violations can appeal through the channels.

To enhance public supervision over the military, the commission has vowed to protect the rights of whistleblowers, encouraging them to report under real names.

The CMC Discipline Inspection Commission was set up In January as China reshuffled its four military headquarters -- staff, politics, logistics and armaments -- into 15 new agencies under the CMC.
