Global anti-cor­rup­tion hunt a suc­cess

Shanghai Daily - - FRONT PAGE -

CHINA’S world­wide anti-cor­rup­tion man­hunt brought back 1,335 fugi­tives and re­cov­ered 3.54 bil­lion yuan (US$519.44 mil­lion) of il­le­gal gains in 2018, ac­cord­ing to the lat­est of­fi­cial fig­ures.

They in­cluded 307 for­mer mem­bers of the Com­mu­nist Party of China or govern­ment em­ploy­ees, ac­cord­ing to the CPC Cen­tral Com­mis­sion for Dis­ci­pline In­spec­tion and Na­tional Su­per­vi­sory Com­mis­sion.

Of the 307 fugi­tives, five were on the In­ter­pol Red Notice of 100 Chi­nese cor­rup­tion fugi­tives most wanted by China.

China has run the man­hunt coded “Sky Net” for four years, fo­cus­ing mainly on cor­rupt fugi­tives and il­le­gal as­set re­cov­ery over­seas, amid a re­newed anti-cor­rup­tion drive.

In all, “Sky Net” op­er­a­tions have cap­tured more than 5,000 fugi­tives from more than 120 coun­tries and re­gions, in­clud­ing 56 fugi­tives on the red notice, and re­cov­ered more than 10 bil­lion yuan.
