Interpol chief goes missing
HE left his home in Lyon, France, for a visit to his homeland, and then vanished, putting Interpol at the centre of its own missing persons case.
Meng Hongwei, Interpol’s president, boarded a plane and arrived in China, according to a French judicial official. But then, nothing. His wife said she hadn’t heard from her husband since the end of September.
The South China Morning Post, a Hong Kong newspaper, hinted that Mr Meng, 64, who was also a vice-minister for public safety in China, may have been the latest target of an ongoing campaign against corruption in China.
