Chinese premier stresses public fund audit, Xinhua says

Premier Li Keqiang has urged auditing authorities to improve supervision over the use of public money, especially cash earmarked for enhancing people’s livelihood, Xinhua news agency reported Thursday, citing a State Council statement. Li said violations including misappropriation and embezzlement of public funds will be severely punished. Underlining the role of audit in combating corruption, the premier said auditing should cover all of the country’s fiscal funds, and bring all departments and projects using the money under the supervision of auditing organs.
