CHONGQING, May 3 (Xinhua) -- An official in southwest China's city of Chongqing will be prosecuted on corruption charges after appearing in a sex video, local prosecutors said Friday.
Lei Zhengfu, former secretary of Chongqing's Beibei District Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC), was found to have appeared in a sex video in November. He was removed from his official post later.
The prosecution said it is filing charges against Lei, as police have completed their investigation into Lei's alleged crimes.
Xiao Ye, who was found to have organized a group to tempt officials, secretly record their sex acts and then blackmail those involved, will be charged of blackmail, according to the prosecutors.
In January this year, 10 government officials or those of state-owned enterprises in Chongqing were sacked for involvement in sex video.
