In­ter­pol chief goes miss­ing

Sunday Tasmanian - - NEWS -

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.
