An investigation by provincial authorities had determined that Guangdong is home to some 2,190 “naked officials”. There were 866 removed from their positions, with a warning that other “naked officials” who avoided punishment will not be considered for promotions.

It is reported many officials were participating in a Hong Kong investment scheme that allowed them to purchase “residency” in distant African countries.

A Chinese language report says those officials who were removed from their posts will be reassigned.
