Why to encourage impeachment? What’s the standard of award for encouraging someone impeaches corruption cases?

Basically, corruption is a type of crime with relative high "criminal black number" , and the identified cases are only a small part of the corruption that has occurred. Because the corruption is a kind of highly covert crime, the impeachment through the public will increase the exposure rate of the crime and, therefore, is much helpful to investigate and frighten out of the corruption.

According to "The Anti-Corruption Informant Rewards and Protection Regulation", the amount of rewards given to the informant shall be calculated based on the table as follows:
