A total of 21 government officials and senior managers of State-owned enterprises now have been punished in connection with a sex-tape scandal last year in which they were blackmailed after their sex acts were secretly recorded.
Xinhua News Agency reported on Tuesday that those disciplined were 15 government officials and six senior managers of State-owned enterprises.
One of the 21 was Lei Zhengfu, former Party chief of Chongqing's Beibei district, who was stripped of his Party membership and removed from his post. He also faces prosecution.
