In October of last year, China’s Ministry of Defense concluded an investigation into former General Xu Caihou for alleged corruption. The Ministry discovered General Xu Caihou had received exorbitant bribes throughout his career.
A Life Under Scrutiny
Reports by the Hong Kong’s Phoenix Weekly and the Financial Time declared the General had extremely large amounts of money in different currencies in the basement of his 21,500-square-foot house. Sources also mentioned that in addition to money, he had all kinds of valuable jewels and paintings. The military had to bring in a dozen trucks just to move the cash and goods the General stored away.
Soon after the announcement, the Chinese public began to comment on the matter on social media and blogging websites such as Weibo, the most popular microblogging website in China. Most of the comments expressed shock in response to the value of the bribes, showing how affected the people were by the deeply entrenched roots of corruption.
As the world’s most populous country, China should have strong regulatory agencies. Unfortunately, they do not have the necessary resources to screen important figures in the government.
A good solution to China’s corruption problem is establishing a screening process to detect deception when officials are asked about crimes like bribery, fraud or embezzlement.
Fortunately, there is a new screening process that can help countries with corruption problems. EyeDetect™ is a new lie-detection technology that monitors eye behavior and detects deception with 85 percent accuracy. This is the solution governments need to prevent the General Xu’s of the world from benefiting from corruption.
