China is investigating a corruption inspector for corruption, Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) said Monday, as an anti-graft campaign intensifies.

Since President Xi Jinping’s appointment last year, the government has cracked down on official corruption and extravagance in China, where the common and public flaunting of personal and often illicit wealth has led to widespread criticism of the ruling Communist Party.

The Communist Party’s anti-corruption watchdog said in a one-line statement on its website that Cao Lixin, a disciplinary inspector with the CCDI, was being investigated for suspected serious violation of discipline and laws. It gave no details.
