Sex video official to stand trial

Beijing, June 6 (IANS) A former official who was placed under investigation following a sex video scandal will stand trial June 19 in a court in southwest China’s Chongqing city.

The Chongqing No. 1 Intermediate People’s Court will hear a corruption case centred around Lei Zhengfu, former secretary of Chongqing’s Beibei District Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC), the court said Thursday.

Lei, 55, was found to have appeared in a sex video that was posted online last November. He was subsequently removed from his official post and detained by police Feb 1. In early May, he was expelled from the CPC, reported Xinhua.

In January 2013, 10 government officials and heads of state-owned enterprises in Chongqing were sacked for their involvement in the sex videos.
