A fugitive suspected of duty encroachment and contract fraud was repatriated from Singapore to China on Monday, the top anti-graft body announced Tuesday.
Liang Zening was former president of a village collective enterprise in Shenzhen, south China's Guangdong Province, said the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection of the Communist Party of China and the National Supervisory Commission in a statement.
Liang fled to Singapore in September 2015 and was listed on the Interpol Red Notice in March 2016, said the statement, adding that he was arrested by Singaporean law enforcement agencies and repatriated in accordance with the law.
An official with the office in charge of fugitive repatriation and asset recovery under China's central anti-corruption coordination group said Liang's case was typical of grassroots corruption that infringes on people's rights and interests, and such cases are currently a focus of fugitive repatriation and asset recovery work.
China will continue deepening cooperation with foreign law enforcement agencies and bring fugitives to justice through extradition and repatriation, said the official.
