The Ill-gotten Party Assets Settlement Committee plans to investigate the China Youth
Corps, with a hearing scheduled for February next year.
The committee said it is to examine the history of the corps’ establishment, the composition of its personnel and the source of its assets to judge whether the organization is affiliated with the Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT).
The corps was mentioned in the party’s “Rules on General Promotion of Making Youth Groups Wholesome and Enabling their Coordination with the Party’s Basic Organizations” (健全各種青年團體與黨的基層組織配合推行總動員工作實施辦法) in Article 4 and Article 7, the committee said.
Article 4 says: “The China Youth Corps is the party’s peripheral organization to lead all activities for our party’s youths,” while Article 7 states: “The staff of the Corps should, as much as possible, be comprised of talented party members in order to reinforce the party’s leadership.” [FULL STORY]
