Global Times – Metro Shanghai - - PULSE -

Changn­ing district procu­ra­tors suc­cess­fully per­suaded a crim­i­nal sus­pect who had fled over­seas to re­turn China, turn him­self in and con­fess his crime, re­ported thep­a­per.cn.

The sus­pect, sur­named Li, was the for­mer man­ager of a lo­cal air­plane tick­et­ing busi­ness. Af­ter au­thor­i­ties be­gan to in­ves­ti­gate Li for em­bez­zle­ment, he went on the lam in the US.

Once there, how­ever, he could not re­ceive a res­i­dency per­mit and failed to learn enough English to get around.

Li’s fam­ily in Shang­hai, in con­junc­tion with the procu­ra­tors, begged him to re­turn, bait­ing him with lo­cal gos­sip and talk­ing about his fa­vorite Shang­hai foods to make him home­sick.

Af­ter promis­ing him a le­nient pun­ish­ment, Li even­tu­ally agreed to come home and fess up to his crime.
