Sentinel Project: National Supervisory Commission

The National Supervisory Commission (NSC) works alongside the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) and acts as the state's highest anti-corruption agency in the People’s Republic of China. The NSC was largely hailed by the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) leadership as a step forward in the fight against misconduct, as the body has jurisdiction over all Chinese citizens, including members of the CCP. However, legal experts have noted that the NSC does not have authority to investigate personnel from the People’s Liberation Army and People’s Armed Police, two organizations that have been overwhelmed by rampant corruption.
