China expels ex-Interpol chief Meng from Communist Party

AFP , Wednesday 27 Mar 2019

China has expelled former Interpol chief Meng Hongwei from the Communist Party and dismissed him from his official positions, the country's graft watchdog announced Wednesday.

Meng, who served as the vice minister of public security, disappeared last year during a visit to China from France and was later accused of accepting bribes.

"Meng Hongwei has no party principle... does not report personal matters in accordance with regulations... and refuses to implement the decision of the Party Central Committee," the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection said in a statement.
