China nabs one-third of 100 over­seas sus­pects

China Daily (Canada) - - NEWS CAPSULE -

China has brought back to the coun­try one-third of those on its top 100 list of most-wanted cor­rup­tion sus­pects who have fled over­seas, the top graft buster said.

In April last year, In­ter­pol is­sued red no­tices in­ter­na­tional ar­rest war­rants for 100 Chi­nese fugi­tives. By the end of July, 33 had been re­turned from 16 coun­tries and re­gions, in­clud­ing seven from Canada, the CCDI data show. Two of the 33 have been con­victed and sen­tenced.

So far, 2,020 eco­nomic fugi­tives, in­clud­ing 342 for­mer of­fi­cials, have been re­turned to China from more than 70 coun­tries and re­gions since 2014, ac­cord­ing to the Cen­tral Com­mis­sion for Dis­ci­pline In­spec­tion.
