The sweeping and unsparing anti-graft campaign makes the roster of corrupt officials surely an all-star one.

Former Public Security Minister Zhou Yongkang, who was arrested and expelled from the Communist Party in December, became the highest-ranking official under investigation in more than three decades.

He was accused of leaking state’s secrets and trading his power for sex and a huge amount of money.

Another senior tiger encaged is Xu Caihou, former vice chairman of Central Military Commission. Xu reportedly hoarded a ton of cash and precious jade in his basement.
