Economic fugitive returned to China

Issue Time:2015-06-11

BEIJING -- Another suspect from China's "100 most wanted economic fugitives" list was repatriated on Monday, the People's Procuratorate of Beijing announced.

Sun Xin, 46, and a former cashier of the Beijing municipal bureau of press, is suspected of embezzlement while at the bureau. He allegedly transferred money to his own company and used some of it to play the futures and stock market.

He fled to Southeast Asia on Oct 2008. The municipal police learned that Sun was hiding in Cambodia in May and worked with the Cambodia public security department to locate Sun.

Interpol's National Central Bureau of China released a list of 100 persons wanted worldwide in April, including 77 men and 23 women allegedly involved in corruption.

The list is part of the "Sky Net" campaign to repatriate corruption suspects. Sky Net involves the government, the Communist Party of China (CPC), central bank and diplomatic services. According to CPC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI), those on the list are only a fraction of its targets.
