Chinese Prime Minister Wen Jiabao issued a new call on Monday for the government to end a culture of graft lest it lead to the end of Communist rule.
In an article in the Communist Party journal Qiushi, or Seeking Truth, Mr. Wen said the government must hold officials more accountable for corruption that occurs on their watch.
The article is the latest in a string of anti-corruption broadsides aired since the former Politburo member Bo Xilai was ensnared in a murder investigation.
Mr. Bo was removed from the Politburo after party officials issued a report accusing him of “serious disciplinary violations” and accusing his wife, Gu Kailai, of arranging the killing of Neil Heywood, a British business person.
