China will put into orbit a campaign code named “Sky Net” in a bid to arrest corrupt and scandalous officials who have fled abroad, the country’s anti-graft authority said on Thursday.

Beginning in April, involved departments will make joint efforts to seize a group of dishonest and deceitful officials. It will require cleaning up of illegal certificates, busting underground banks, recovering assets involved in criminal cases and persuading fugitive suspects to return home.

Several government departments will come under “Sky Net” including the Organisational Department of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, the Supreme People’s Procuratorate (SPP), The Ministry of public security, and the People’s Bank of China (PBOC), or the central bank.
