Af­ter cap­ture, fugi­tive re­grets flee­ing abroad

China Daily (Canada) - - FRONT PAGE -

An eco­nomic fugi­tive sur­named Zhuang said he would not have fled abroad if he had known the way things would turn out.

Zhuang, for­merly a Guangzhou busi­ness rep­re­sen­ta­tive, and his wife fled to Myan­mar in Jan­uary af­ter they had amassed more than170 mil­lion yuan ($27.4 mil­lion) by coun­ter­feit­ing land trad­ing doc­u­ments in Guang­dong’s pro­vin­cial cap­i­tal.

The two were brought back to Guangzhou un­der guard on Tues­day.

Zhuang de­scribed life on the run as be­ing full of hard­ship.

Guangzhou po­lice formed a spe­cial task force to pur­sue Zhuang and his wife when it was re­ported that they had fled abroad.

The cou­ple were just two of the many fugi­tives who have fled abroad but have since been de­tained and re­turned to China, a Guangzhou po­lice depart­ment spokesman said.
