Fleeing suspect gives up fight

China | Nov 8, 2017
One of China's most-wanted overseas fugitives, a manager in a real-estate company sought on charges of corruption and bribery, turned himself in yesterday after fleeing to Canada seven years ago, the anti-graft agency said.

He Jian, a manager in Hebei who had fled in September 2010, becomes the 49th on a list of 100 most-wanted individuals to return, the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection said on its website.

He, his family or a legal representative could not be reached for comment.

He's assets were frozen after he fled and Interpol issued a red notice for his provisional arrest, the agency said, but it did not make clear where He lived after his flight to Canada, nor from which country he had returned. The Fox Hunt and Sky Net operations to repatriate overseas fugitives suspected of corruption and economic crimes constitute a key plank of President Xi Jinping's sweeping anti-graft campaign.

China published its list of most- wanted suspects believed to be hiding overseas in April 2015.

But it has had limited success in securing cooperation largely because of lack of transparency in China's judicial system.
