Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Lu Kang stated that missing Interpol President Meng Hongwei was under investigation for bribery and corruption in Beijing on Monday, 13 days after Meng went missing.
“Meng Hongwei is suspected of being involved in taking bribes. He submitted in person the written resignation to Interpol,” Lu said.
Interpol confirmed that Meng had sent in his resignation on Sunday.
The investigation “shows China’s determination for law-based governance and anti-corruption,” Lu stated. “China will support the work of Interpol as always and strengthen the cooperation with Interpol in fighting criminals.”
Meng was reported missing to the French police by his wife Grace Meng on October 4, after sending his final message on September 25 during a trip to China.
China’s chief anti-corruption body, the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection, announced that Meng was under investigation for unspecified illegal conduct on Sunday.
