Disappeared Interpol head under Investigation by China

  • According to Beijing authorities, the head of Interpol, who vanished earlier, is now under investigation. China's ruling Communist Party has confirmed the news stating that Meng Hongwei, who is also China's public security's vice minister, has been held by the National Supervision Commission under investigation for violations of laws. However, it is still not clear whether he would be arrested or would stay in the country.

    Hongwei suddenly disappeared after returning from France to China. Interpol also said that it did receive resignation from Meng with "immediate effect."
