After capture, fugitive regrets fleeing abroad
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.
