Life sentences can be handed to people convicted of spreading pornography through the internet, mobile phone SMS and voice mail, judicial officials announced yesterday.


The interpretation by the Supreme People's Court and Supreme People's Procuratorate comes into effect today as part of a pornography crackdown. The severity of the sentences would depend on the amount of 'pornographic services' provided and how far they were spread.
