BEIJING — The Ministry of Education on July 6 named and shamed university employees who had broken regulations relating to “righteous life and work styles”.

The ministry named staff from three universities involved in five cases concerning travel expenses paid for with public funds, fraudulent retiree compensation claims and accepting financial gifts at weddings.

In one case, faculties under Tongji University’s School of Economics and Management were found to have financed an overseas visit with public funds in July 2013.

In another case, Yang Jinquan, deputy general manager of Beijing Jiaotong University’s logistics service industry group, had accepted cash at her daughter’s wedding in November 2014.

Punishments were meted out to violators, such as disciplinary warnings.

An eight-point rule on bureaucracy, formalism and extravagance was introduced at a meeting of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China Central Committee at the end of 2012.
