Three restaurants in Beijing's northeast Huairou District were ordered to take down state leaders' pictures, which were hung in the restaurants as advertisement, the Beijing News reported Sunday.

Altogether, 37 pictures of state leaders including some late state leaders who had visited the three restaurants were found hung in the restaurants during the on-going inspection by the Beijing Administration for Industry and Commerce, the paper said.

"Beijing Administration for Industry and Commerce is inspecting local restaurants which hung Chinese leaders pictures as a way to increase their influence and attract customers," an official with the administration was quoted as saying.

If the three restaurants do not take down these pictures on time, they will be fined for violation of China's advertisement law, the official said.

In last June, State Administration for Industry and Commerce has issued a notice reiterating state leaders' pictures and epigraphs were banned to be used for business promotion.

"If a company or restaurant wants to introduce his own development or history, it can hang these pictures or epigraphs in exhibition hall or memorial hall," the official added.
