ZHENG Dongqiang, a fugi­tive crime sus­pect, yes­ter­day re­turned to China to sur­ren­der to au­thor­i­ties, ac­cord­ing to a state­ment on the web­site of the Com­mu­nist Party of China Cen­tral Com­mis­sion for Dis­ci­pline In­spec­tion.

Born in Septem­ber 1953, Zheng was the for­mer deputy head of the pub­lic se­cu­rity bu­reau of Xi­a­men, south­east China’s Fu­jian Prov­ince.

Sus­pected of tak­ing bribes, he fled the coun­try in Jan­uary 2016.

Zheng was the fourth fugi­tive to re­turn to China to turn him­self in af­ter the of­fice in charge of fugi­tive repa­tri­a­tion and as­set re­cov­ery pub­li­cized clues re­lated to 50 fugi­tive duty crime and eco­nomic crime sus­pects.

The of­fice re­it­er­ated in the state­ment that it will con­tinue to take vig­or­ous ac­tion to repa­tri­ate fugi­tives and re­cover as­sets.

It urged cor­rupt fugi­tives to turn them­selves in as soon as pos­si­ble as they would be treated le­niently.
