The disciplinary watchdog of the Communist Party of China (CPC) exposed 147 breaches of anti-bureaucracy and formalism guidelines from Aug. 11 to 17.

The cases were reported by discipline inspectors in more than 25 provinces, the CPC's Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) said in a weekly report on its website on Monday.

Violations of the guidelines were also found at Xinjiang Production and Construction Corps and the General Administration of Customs.

The violations include the use of public funds for tourism or moon cakes, private use of official cars, breaches of workplace rules and discipline, taking part-time jobs, lavish spending at official banquets, acceptance of festival gifts and attending expensive entertainment activities.

Violators were given penalties ranging from Party warnings to expulsion from the CPC, demotion, and removal from posts, according to the report.

The "eight-point" anti-bureaucracy and formalism rules were introduced by the CPC top leadership in December 2012. They ordered CPC officials to reduce pomp, ceremony, bureaucratic visits and meetings.

On April 8, the CCDI launched a new section on its website inviting the public to report cases of corruption and misconduct.
