China to prosecute former Interpol chief
Beijing: China will prosecute former head of Interpol Meng Hongwei for allegedly taking bribes, China’s Communist Party said on Wednesday.
He was expelled from the party and stripped of all government positions, according to the party’s watchdog, the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection, the BBC reported.
Meng’s disappearance in September prompted international concern. He was reported missing by his wife during a trip back to China.
The 65-year-old, who had been living in France, resigned as Interpol President after being detained by the Chinese authorities.
In October, Chinese authorities said Meng was being investigated for suspected bribe-taking.
