CHINA - Photos of an 'adultery contract' drawn up between a Chinese official, Tao Yi, and his mistress, Ms Fan, has recently surfaced on the Internet.
According to a Headline Asia report, the written contract, dated March 2013, stipulates the couple to have a weekly meetup and to refrain from having sex with other people.
In the contract, it is also agreed that Ms Fan will face punishment if she interferes with Mr Tao's work or family, whereas Mr Tao agrees to be responsible for his mistress' living expenses.
In addition, the contract stipulates that a formal written notice must be given if either party wishes to terminate the affair.
Failure to honour the terms in the contract will result in a 10,000 yuan (S$2,048) fine.
Since the adultery contract's exposure, Mr Tao has been relieved of his official duties, according to a government spokesperson.
In recent months, Chinese officials' corruption activities have come to light as they fall out with their mistresses. Many such cases show the men leading lavish lifestyles with these women.
