A statement issued by the Special Operation Office for Crackdown on Online Porn and Lewd Content revealed that about a third of the closed websites had not registered with governmental departments, reports the China Daily.

The statement further added that such websites violated the top legislature's regulations, and other laws regarding public distribution of sexual images.

The month-long campaign against Internet porn was launched by the State Council's Information Office, Ministry of Public Security and Ministry of Culture as well as four other government agencies.
