Former Head of China’s National Religious Affairs Administration Arrested for Bribery

China’s Supreme People’s Procuratorate has announced the arrest of Cui Maohu, the former head of the National Religious Affairs Administration, on suspicion of bribe-taking. Cui was placed under investigation for corruption by the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection on March 18 and was subsequently removed from the ruling Communist Party and public office. The investigation revealed that Cui engaged in vanity projects by occupying arable land and improperly accepted gifts and property. Additionally, he was accused of abusing his position for personal gain, including engaging in illicit activities involving sex and money.

This is not the first instance of a senior government official being investigated for corruption in China. Prior to Cui’s arrest, Zheng Hong, former deputy chairman of Chongqing Municipal People’s Congress, and Jiang Zhigang, former deputy party chief of Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region, were also under investigation. Chinese President Xi Jinping has emphasized the country’s commitment to cracking down on corruption during the Communist Party Congress in October last year. The Ministry of National Defense has reiterated that the Chinese military operates in accordance with the law and does not tolerate corruption.
