The media have graced us with two major sex scandals in the past week, one involving incriminating photos of the vice president of a Communist Party training school in Shaanxi province and the other involving a surfaced sex tape featuring the vice president of Kunming Institute of Zoology. Both cases led to the officials’ dismissals.
On January 15, Qin Guogang, the vice president of a Communist Party training school, was suspended from his position when a woman named Li under the Weibo account @侠客打虎 posted incriminating photos of him online.
According to Want China Times:
Li’s lawyer Qu Jianguo told the state-run Global Times that Li submitted the hour-long sex video and other related materials to the disciplinary authorities on Wednesday.
Li…released a total of nine photos. Four of them show her student identity certificate, while the other four photos show a naked man resembling Qin in a number of positions, with one showing a woman with long hair covering her face, which is visibly red and swollen
The victim, a 35-year-old single mother and post-graduate student, said that she and Qin met in August 2012, and that their relationship turned into something “beyond ordinary relations”.
Li said that she ended things with him after a year when she found out he was married, and that he had been having affairs with several students, often violent in nature.
On December 20 last year, Li said that she was beaten in Qin’s office by he and his wife and that he offered her compensation of 200,000 yuan when she reported it to the police.
The case is still under investigation.
On the same day, the vice president of an institute in Yunnan Province was suspended after video footage showing him having sex a young colleague surfaced online.
The sex scandal erupted last Tuesday when an anonymous blogger posted nude pictures of Wang Wen, vice president of Kunming Institute of Zoology, on an online forum, describing Wang as “the Lei Zhengfu of Kunming”, referring to a Chongqing party official embroiled in a sex tape scandal last year.
“The institute received petition letters regarding the incident on December 27, last year… Wang was removed from all his posts in the institute last Thursday and is now under investigation,” said an announcement posted on the institute’s official website on Wednesday. The institute is under administration of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
The blogger named “wwkmdws” claimed the female employee had been forced into a sexual relationship with Wang in exchange for a post at the institute.
