Interpol chief Meng Hongwei vanishes on trip to China
Gb news24 desk//
France has opened an investigation into the disappearance of Meng Hongwei, the Chinese head of the international police agency Interpol.
His family have not heard from him since he left Interpol HQ in the French city of Lyon for a trip back to China on 25 September, officials said.
“He did not disappear in France,” a source close to the inquiry told AFP. The South China Morning Post quotes a source as saying Mr Meng, 64, was “taken away” for questioning in China.
It is not clear why he was being investigated by “discipline authorities” or where he was being held, the Hong Kong-based newspaper adds.
Officials in China have so far made no public comments on Mr Meng, a senior Communist Party official there.
