First most-wanted fugi­tive is caught

China Daily (Canada) - - FRONT PAGE -

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)
