Chinese authorities had handled 10 criminal cases, 67 administrative cases and ordered over 70 websites to rectify transgressions by the end of July in campaigns against online vulgar and pornographic literature content, said a national office overseeing the work on Wednesday.

A total of 347 case clues relating to pornography were transferred to authorities involved in the crackdown, according to the National Office for the Fight Against Pornography and Illegal Publications.

The office also revealed eight typical cases from its special crackdown campaigns.

In one case in east China's Anhui Province, suspects were detained and fined for uploading pornographic novels and operating related websites since April 2018.

In another case in east China's Jiangsu Province, a company was warned and fined for providing comics which harm social morality via a mobile app and WeChat subscription account.
