Chinese e-commerce platform JD.com published an anti-graft announcement on Friday and revealed 16 cases of corruption. Four people were detained by the police, suspected of criminal offenses, and 16 were laid off. JD also published full names of all its former employees and some of the photos when the police came to detain them.

Most of the cases were associated with the bribery by or of a JD staff member and an external company or misappropriation of corporate assets. The involved departments ranged from to different sectors under the retail division to the company’s finance division. For instance, Ren Bing, a manager at JD’s delivery division, had taken money and gifts from carriers. Ren has been detained by the police. Guo Zhiduo, a business development staff at JD’s e-commerce division, borrowed money from several suppliers.

JD said in the announcement that it will not tolerate any type of corruption and the names of all parties that are involved in the corruption will be made known to the public.
