most wanted

In a major twist and victory for China’s ruling Communist Party’s hunt for fugitives who have taken refuge oversees, Yang Xiuzhu, a former deputy director of Wenzhou’s construction bureau in the booming eastern province of Zhejiang, surrendered to Chinese authorities.

Yang is China’s most wanted corruption suspect who returned to China from the United States on Wednesday and turned herself in after reportedly spending 13 years in hiding overseas.

According to the party’s graft-busting Central Commission for Discipline Inspection, China published a list of 100 of its most wanted corruption suspects who had been targeted with an Interpol red notice last April and Yang was ranked number one on the list and is the 37th fugitive to return so far.

Chinese officials “introduced relevant policies to Yang Xiuzhu, advising her to abandon her resistance and give herself up, and get lenient treatment in accordance with the law”, the Central Commission added in a separate statement.
