China nabs one-third of 100 overseas suspects
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.
