China shuts down 62 porn websites


China has recently investigated and shut down 62 porn websites, according to a release by the Information Office of the State Council on March 31.

China Internet Illegal Information Reporting Center carried out investigation on the websites suspected of disseminating obscene, pornographic and vulgar information upon receiving reports from ordinary citizens.

Some of the websites organized nude video chats, released pornographic videos and offered information on prostitution. Some others promoted unhealthy lifestyles, encouraging people to be mistresses and engage in one-night stands.

Some published illegal advertisements for drug and sex devices and cheated netizen. Other sites disseminated various types of obscene, pornographic and vulgar information, such as so-called body art, self-portraits and candid pictures.

These 62 websites were registered in 14 provinces and municipalities, including 20 in Beijing, eight in Fujian, seven in Guangdong and five in Shanghai, Zhejiang and Hunan.

The illegal practices of these websites have brought about evil influence online. Certain authorities have shut down websites and canceled their registrations.

Public security departments have punished the criminals in accordance with related laws and provisions for the illegal dissemination of obscene information online.

China Telecom, China Unicom and related local authorities will penalize the enterprises that provided Internet access services for the illegal websites.

An official from the Internet Affairs Bureau under the Information Office of the State Council said that the online dissemination of pornographic and vulgar information has effectively been curbed since nine ministries, including the Information Office of the State Council, initiated a “Special Campaign against the Spread of Obscene, Pornographic and Vulgar Information through the Internet and Mobile Phones.”

Related organs will work together in the future to continue the efforts in cleaning up the Web environment and safeguarding the development of the youth.
