Shandong’s Gaomi Municipal Committee has launched an investigation regarding a post that claims to report a local official’s sexual assault on a male netizen.
Wang Xian, 25, in his post yesterday accused the 47-year-old Vice Chairman of the Gaomi Municipal Agriculture Bureau of inducing him to engage in sexual activities. He gave a detailed account of their encounters and urged the government to bring the corrupt official to justice. The post gained widespread attention online.
Reporters managed to contact him and were told that since October this year, Nie Yujie has forced Wang to have sex with him five times. He never compensated Wang for his acts, and threatened to post Wang’s pictures online if he does not keep his mouth shut.
Reporters later contacted the Agriculture Bureau to verify Wang’s claims. The Bureau admitted that they do have a Vice Chairman named Nie, but denied to have heard about the scandal and said it was ”impossible”. The investigation continues while reporters attempt to reach Nie.
