Beijing has confirmed that the missing chief of Interpol, mr Meng Hongwei is held in China.

According to Chinese authorities, Meng Hongwei is under investigation by the anti-corruption body for violations for unspecified breaches of the law.

Meng, vice-minister of public security in China, had disappeared after a trip from France to China on September 25th.

Interpol said he received his resignation from the presidency on Sunday with immediate effect.

China’s National Supervision Commission, which controls the corruption cases of senior party cadres, said in a statement published on the official website that Meng was under investigation.

Mr. Meng’s case is not the only one in the country. Recently in China, a number of senior party officials, billionaires, and even prominent celebrities have disappeared.

Last week, the famous actress Fan Bingbing, who disappeared in July, reappeared in public with an apology letter published on the Weibo social platform. The actress will have to pay a fine of almost 100 million dollars for tax evasion.
