China's top procuratorate has announced that 67 people working in the science sector have been investigated for bribes and embezzlement of science funds over two years ending in December 2014.

The 67 suspects include 25 officials, 11 professors or senior research fellows and one academic (researcher with the highest academic title in China), according to an announcement of the Supreme People's Procuratorate (SPP) Wednesday.

Among the suspects, three are culpable for cases involving more than 10million yuan (1.62 million US dollars), 20 involved in cases of 1 million to 10 million yuan.

China earmarks special funds to support the application of scientific discoveries. The SPP statement proposed to tighten "dynamic" supervision over the use of the fund.

It also suggested reforming management systems of scientific research funds.
