Prosecutors in Ningbo, East China's Zhejiang Province have filed corruption charges against the former head of the country's cyberspace administration, the website of the Supreme People's Procuratorate said on Monday.

Prosecutors said Lu Wei took advantage of his positions by taking huge amounts of cash and goods from others and gaining benefits for others, it said.

Lu, the former deputy head of the publicity department of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee and former head of the Cyberspace Administration of China, was expelled from the Party and dismissed from public office for various offenses, including bribery, the Xinhua News Agency reported in February.

Mo Jiancheng, a former member of the CPC committee of the Ministry of Finance, and Zhang Jiehui, a former deputy director of the Standing Committee of the Hebei Provincial People's Congress, were also charged of bribery, the notice said.
