Six people were named in a criticism notice after they were investigated for using government cars for private purposes in Guangzhou last month.

The six — three government officials, a police officer, a court judge and an urban management officer — have been required to pay the expenses for the use of government cars, Mei Heqing, a member of the standing committee of the city’s anti-graft body, said on Monday.

“Starting in April, the city’s anti-graft body monthly makes the operation system of the city’s government cars public and punishes those who are found to have misused government cars,” Mei said.

A total of 8,491 government cars in the southern metropolis have been equipped with an electronic monitoring system and a GPS system to prevent the misuse of government cars.

“Further investigations will quickly be launched when a government car is found to have operated on weekends, during public holidays, at midnight, or park near golf courses, sauna houses and other luxury entertainment venues for more than two hours through an early warning system,” Mei said.

The city’s anti-graft body will introduce specific rules and regulations to punish those who misuse government cars, he added.
