The People's Liberation Army (PLA) of China will step up efforts to weed out corruption in the military as the anti-corruption campaign widens, according to a document released on Friday.

The decision made by the Central Military Commission (CMC) asked the army to root out "chronic diseases", seek both temporary and permanent solutions and fundamentally improve their work style, said the document.

The management and supervision of middle and high-ranking officers should be highlighted, said the document, adding zero tolerance stance must be insisted upon. "There should never be any sanctuary for corrupt officers in the military."

General Secretary of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee and CMC Chairman Xi Jinping has said that corruption threatened the survival of the Party and called for serious reflection on the corruption case of Xu Caihou, former CMC vice chairman and by far the highest ranking military official being investigated and prosecuted.

On Thursday, the Defense Ministry announced that anti-corruption inspections will target the armed forces, including the PLA navy, air forces, the Second Artillery Corps and the armed police. Before that, the PLA made a rare move by announcing the investigation of 16 senior military officials.
