China’s Former Interpol Chief ‘in Secret Bribery Probe’ After Resignation

The former head of Interpol, Meng Hongwei, is being held for investigation for corruption at a secret location “on the outskirts of Beijing” after the international police body accepted his resignation “with immediate effect” on Sunday, RFA has learned.

Meng resigned as President of Interpol on Sunday, Interpol said in a brief statement on its website, but gave no reason for the resignation, nor did it provide details of his status or whereabouts. Meng had been elected to lead the international police agency until 2020.
