BEIJING, Jan. 4 (Xinhua) -- Forty-five million illegal publications were confiscated and over 3.7 million pieces of online information involving pornography or other illegal content were deleted in China in 2012.

The figures were included in a statement issued by the National Office Against Pornographic and Illegal Publications on Friday to sum up the achievements of the country's fight against illegal publications, pornography and piracy.

The statement said authorities handled more than 15,000 relevant cases in 2012, adding that some suspects have already been transferred to judicial organs, prosecuted or sentenced.

The office also revealed some details of ten major violations in 2012, including one in which a ringleader in Beijing was sentenced to 14 years in prison for selling over 35,000 pornographic products.

A local court in Hotan City, Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, sentenced a man to ten years in prison for selling illegal publications.
