China to prosecute former Interpol chief for graft

March 27, 2019

BEIJING (Reuters) – China will prosecute former Interpol chief Meng Hongwei for graft after an investigation found he was suspected of taking bribes and breaking discipline rules, the ruling Communist Party’s anti-corruption watchdog said on Wednesday.

Meng has also been expelled from the party, it added.

Last year, Interpol, the France-based global police coordination organization, said Meng had resigned as its president after French authorities said he had been reported missing by his wife after traveling to his home country.
