Chinese police authorities disclosed Saturday two cases involving illegalities committed through the Internet.
According to the Ministry of Public Security, police forces have just cracked an online chatroom for porn performances in Guangdong Province, and destroyed a group which forced and seduced women for prostitution in Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region.
According to China's laws, descriptions of sexual discourse that blatantly publicize pornographic and lewd images are illegal, and organizers of prostitution will face felony charges.
Police authorities of south China's Guangdong Province have cracked a group of nine suspects who had set up an online chatroom to sell lewd performances to Internet users.
The nine suspects were detected to organize showgirls making provocative performances free of charge for common Internet users through a chatroom named "Caribbean Sea".
Internet users had to pay to acquire membership of the chatroom so that they could watch naked girls making lewd performances through cameras.
It was found that the lewd performances were conducted from noon to 2:00 a.m. at the chatroom with sometimes hundreds of participants. The suspects had gained more than 100,000 yuan by selling the chatroom's membership.
In Guangxi's Baise City, police forces have arrested Luo Feirong and Wei Yuxiang, a couple who seduced women through the Internet to be engaged in prostitution and procured them for local residents.
The couple controlled a total of 13 women for prostitution business, drawing 90 percent of the prostitute's income. They also paid 100 yuan to another pimp who found a sex customer for them each time.
The Chinese government launched the Internet clean-up campaign at the beginning of this year, targeting popular online portals and major search engines such as Google and Baidu.
So far more than 1,000 websites have been blocked for distributing porn and other lewd materials.
