Chi­nese law en­force­ment au­thor­i­ties are work­ing with the United States on the cases of the five most­wanted cor­rupt Chi­nese of­fi­cials liv­ing in the US, a se­nior anti-cor­rup­tion of­fi­cial said.

China is seek­ing US ju­di­cial as­sis­tance in repa­tri­at­ing the five — four of whom are still at large — to China to face trial, said the se­nior of­fi­cial with the In­ter­na­tional Co­op­er­a­tion Bureau of the Cen­tral Com­mis­sion for Dis­ci­pline In­spec­tion.

“We are ne­go­ti­at­ing with our US coun­ter­parts on the five ma­jor cor­rupt fugi­tives, in­clud­ing Yang Xi­uzhu, who is sus­pected of il­le­gal im­mi­gra­tion and is in cus­tody await­ing de­por­ta­tion pro­ceed­ings,” said the of­fi­cial, who re­quested anonymity. “And we have de­cided to con­duct joint in­ves­ti­ga­tions of the ma­jor cases.”
