First most-wanted fugitive is caught
Chinese police have captured Dai Xuemin, the first mostwanted fugitive nabbed since Interpol issued arrest warrants for 100 missing officials suspected of corruption.
Dai, 57, a former manager of a trust and investment company in Shanghai suspected of embezzling 11 million yuan ($1.77 million), was captured at an airport in China, according to the CPC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection.
According to a Beijing News report, Dai fled the country in August 2001 to avoid prosecution and was thought to have escaped to Belize, the United States or South Korea. He was captured on April 25 when he returned with a fake ID and foreign passport, the CCDI said in a statement. (Photo 1)
