Chinese politicians accused of taking part in an orgy after 100 naked photos go viral

High-ranking Chinese politicians have been  accused of taking part in an orgy after more than 100 pictures showing three  naked men and two nude women were uploaded to a social media website.

The photos, which appeared on China’s Twitter  equivalent Weibo, reportedly show the group engaging in sexual acts in a hotel  room.

It is claimed the men are the Party secretary  of Lujiang county in Anhui Province, Wang Minsheng, his deputy, Jiang Dabin, and  the party’s youth leader at Hefei University, Wang Yu.

Gone viral: One of the pictures uploaded to micro-blogging site Weibo which reportedly shows three high-ranking Chinese politicians posing with two women during an alleged orgy

Threesomes are technically illegal in China  and suspects can be prosecuted under a ‘group licentiousness’ statute added to  the criminal code in 1997, according to reports.

Minsheng has denied any part in the scandal,  which has spread like wildfire across the country, and believes the allegations  have been made against him because he is currently handling a corruption case.

He claims the images have been doctored by  his political enemies.

Yu, however, has admitted being in the  pictures and said one of the women was his school teacher wife.

Denials: At least one of the officials allegedly involved has denied that it is him in the photos - claiming instead that opponents have somehow doctored the images

The Global Times, which is affiliated with  the Communist Party, cited a police officer with the Lujiang  county public  security bureau as confirming the case was under  investigation, but did not  confirm if a suspect had been arrested,  according to The Huffington  Post.

The images, which went viral on Weibo last  week, have sparked so much  attention on the micro-blogging site that the State  Council Information  Office, China’s top web censor, has stepped in.

It has issued an official directive stating  that ‘all websites must stop  following and hyping the so-called “Lujiang  Indecent Photos Incident.”‘

Phrases such as ‘naked photos’ and ‘vulgar  photos’ have been banned from the site, according to www.gawker.com.

Chinese authorities are understood to have  revoked the mens’ party membership and Wang Yu has since been fired.

The scandal comes as Gu Kailai, the wife of  disgraced Communist official Bo Xilai, stands trial accused of murdering British  businessman Neil Heywood.
