The Huffington Post today published on its website a photograph of an orgy in which appear several members of the Chinese Communist Party and has started to run like wildfire over the Internet, after Chinese citizens on Thursday the disseminated through the social network Weibo, the equivalent microblogging platform Twitter used by most citizens.
The article originally published in the Huffingtonpost.es adds that in the pictures (there are over 100) reportedly taken in 2007, are three men with two other women participating in an orgy in a hotel and posing next to the bed. The photographs were taken from the computer of one of the members when it was repaired.
In the photos appear at least three members of the Chinese Communist Party. One is the party secretary in the region of Lujiang, Minsheng Wang. The other two are a secretary of the League Young University in Hefei, Wang Yu, and his wife. The latter two have been fired from his job and expelled from the Communist Party.
The Chinese authorities have tried everything so that the scandal does not get worse. Initially announced that it was a montage of Photoshop, but later denied this and said the images were old photographs that did not appear in any official of the Communist apparatus.
This argument fell apart when one of those involved in the orgy, Wang Yu, admitted into the scene and showed his repentance by images, adding that he and his wife were the only party members who participated in the orgy.
The Chinese government propaganda then continued through their media. The Global Times (half funded by the Government of China) also denied that the other members were members of the party and said that he had made a mistake because of the similarity between one of the photographed and the party secretary Wang Minsheng, which is harm intended to be researching various cases of corruption.
The images, however, stopped operating on the network, where Chinese citizens seized the opportunity to express their discontent with the incessant bad example and the corruption that plagues the Asian country.
Censorship came then through the abolition of forums that discussed the scandal, along with a warning from the Government to the Chinese news pages not to discuss the incident, reports The New Yorker.
Threesomes and orgies are banned in the communist country, and members of these can be pursued by the authorities according to the Chinese criminal code. This rule caused a stir when in 2010 the authorities arrested 22 people for participating in sex parties in which exchanges were made partners.
