BEIJING – Another of China’s most wanted graft fugitives returned to China Friday, surrendering to the police and returning bribes he had taken, according to an official statement.
Lai Mingmin (aka Lai Min), was among China’s top 100 fugitives listed on an Interpol Red Notice. He used to be the president of the Jiangmen branch of Bank of China located in South China’s Guangdong province.
He fled to Australia in August 2001 and was listed on an Interpol Red Notice in December 2005. A total of 53 fugitives on the notice have been seized.
Lai is the second overseas fugitive to turn himself in after information on 50 fugitives suspected of duty-related or economic crimes was released June 6.
The information, including the fugitive names, photos and possible current whereabouts, was exposed by an office in charge of fugitive repatriation and asset recovery under the central anti-corruption coordination group.
