Recently, there has been a lot of good news in the area of pursuit and evasion.
On the morning of June 7, 94 Taiwanese criminal suspects who fake public prosecution law officers to commit telecommunication network fraud were escorted back from Spain by Chinese public security organs. This is the first time that China has returned large-scale suspects of telecommunication network fraud from Europe. This is the first time in the history of law enforcement cooperation and extradition in various countries in the world.
On May 28 and 29, Mopefin and Xiao Jianming returned to China to surrender, becoming the ninth and tenth Hundred Hongtong Personnel since the Nineteenth National Congress.
Kwan Hai Jie Bureau noted that in 2015, when the list of 100 Hongtong members of Tianwang Action was released, many officials who had not been notified of their loss were among them Xiao Jianming, who was the only one who returned to China to surrender.
People who die and never return home voluntarily surrender
Six of the 100 fugitives listed in 2015 came from Yunnan, and Xiao Jianming was the oldest and the most senior.
In 1998, Xiao Jianming entered the Yunxi Group. In the following 10 years, he was the chairman and Secretary of the Party Committee of the Yunxi Group. Because with the help of capital market, Yunxi Group was saved from bankruptcy. For a long time, Xiao Jianming was called Yunnan Xiwang.
In December 2007, Bai Enpei, then Secretary of the Yunnan Provincial Party Committee, also commented on the Jiebao of Yunnan Tin Industry Group and congratulated Yunxi Group on its excellent achievements. The following year, Xiao Jianming was transferred to the Yunnan Provincial Peoples Congress as deputy director of the Financial and Economic Commission and became a colleague and subordinate of Bai Enpei.
In 2011, Xiao Jianming resigned from the relevant post of the National Peoples Congress because of his age limit, but he was still a representative of the National Peoples Congress. On June 15, 2012, at the fifth meeting of the 11th National Peoples Congress of Yunnan Province, Xiao Jianming also entered the second group of delegations of Honghe Prefecture. Financial Weekly reported in September 2013 that people close to law enforcement said that Xiao Jianming had also contacted him by mobile phone in July that year, Xiao said he was traveling abroad, others would not say more.
If it hadnt been for the red arrest warrant, little was known about Xiao Jianmings flight. According to the wanted order, Xiao Jianming began to flee in December 2012.
After he returned to China to submit his case, the Discipline Inspection and Supervision Report reported that before he fled, Xiao Jianming arranged for his main relatives to emigrate overseas by various means and bought real estate overseas. After fleeing, Xiao Jianming even wrote a letter to the Yunnan provincial escape office saying, Dont look for me, dont go back, youll die in another country.
Escaping Master of Management
Similar to Xiao Jianmings work experience, Cui Xuewen, the former general manager and party secretary of Lanling Group in Shandong Province, who was also listed on the wanted order, has created the glory of Lanling Group, a well-known winery in China.
Cui Xuewen was born on June 19, 1950 in Tancheng, Shandong Province. Cui Xuewen joined the Lanling Group in 1986 and developed the small winery with 13 million yuan in total assets, 30 million yuan in sales revenue and 5.6 million yuan in profit and tax payments to 1.3 billion yuan in total assets, 1 billion yuan in sales revenue and 1.8 billion yuan in profits and taxes in 2001, according to the Stock Market Weekly. He was also awarded the title of Master of Management by the National Bureau of Statistics in 1995.
In February 2001, Cui Xuewen left Lanling Group and became director of Linyi Economic and Trade Commission. He resigned again in May 2002 for unknown reasons.
In November 2005, Shandong Duty Crime Prevention Network published an article entitled Why the Lanling Group went from prosperity to decline and then quickly recovered. The article points out that by the end of August 2005, the procuratorial organs of Linyi City had investigated 26 cases of corruption (involving more than 16 million yuan) in Lanling Enterprise Corporation of Shandong Province, and initially found out that Cui Xuewen, former chairman and general manager of Lanling Group, was suspected of embezzlement and bribery of more than 260 million yuan, and also suspected of having a huge amount of property from unknown sources.
Although the charges have been made public for a long time, the whereabouts of Cui Xues text-writers were disclosed by the Red Notice 10 years later. At that time, the arrest warrant showed that Cui Xuewen had fled to Canada on January 20, 2003.
High-level Officials who resign voluntarily
In the list of 100 Red Cross Personnel published centrally in China in 2015, there are 6 people involved in Hubei. Xu Jin, the director of Wuhan Primary Reform Commission, is the most conspicuous fugitive suspect among the six people. At present, he and his wife Liu Fang are the only two remaining persons who have not returned home.
According to public data, Xu Jin was born in April 1965 and has been vice secretary of Wuhan Municipal Committee of the Communist Youth League since 1993. He is also a member of the Party group and vice chairman of Wuhan Youth Federation. In 1996, Xu Jin was promoted to vice-governor of Wuchang District Government. Since then, he has served as Deputy Secretary, Acting District Director and District Director of Huangpi District Committee.
In June 2009, Xu Jin was appointed Director of Wuhan Development and Reform Commission. Less than a year later, in April 2010, he resigned on his own initiative. According to the statement of appointment and removal of government personnel at that time, Xu Jin resigned due to family reasons, in order to solve practical problems such as the separation of husband and wife.
Regarding Xu Jins future after his resignation, media reports speculated mostly that he was going to business in Shanghai. According to Time Weekly, Xu Jin joined China Steel Group after his resignation. He was the general manager of a joint venture subsidiary with an annual salary of 500,000 yuan. This allowed Xu Jin to set a record of the highest-ranking officials in Wuhan going to Shanghai for business at that time.
However, the fact is that Xu Jin fled to the United States with his wife Liu Fang, former deputy director of the Hubei Branch of China Insurance Company, one year after his resignation.
In April 2017, a Chinese immigration office in Los Angeles was seized by the FBI and other departments on suspicion of fraud under the name of investment immigrants. Xu Jin and Liu Fang were among the victims of the case. Search warrants showed that Xu Jin and Liu Fang had obtained temporary green cards through the California Investment and Immigration Fund in 2010. At the time of the incident, they had received official green cards from the United States.
Officials with the highest rank of flight
In June 2018, the Central Anti-Corruption Coordination Groups Office for International Pursuit and Pursuit of Stolen Goods issued an announcement concerning some of the fugitives. These disappeared officials whose whereabouts were exposed by the warrants have been disclosed, even if they have not been brought to justice.
But one of them has become a mystery. He is Gao Yan, the former Secretary of Yunnan Provincial Party Committee and general manager of the State Electric Power Company, the highest ranking official who has fled so far.
According to his resume, Gao Yan served as secretary of the Yunnan Provincial Party Committee in June 1995, then vice-minister of the Ministry of Electric Power Industry in August 1997, and general manager of the State Electric Power Company in March 1998. In September 2002, Gao Yan, 60 years old, fled abroad. As early as October 30, 2008, the Hangzhou Public Security Bureau issued an arrest warrant.
The warrant shows that he has three identity cards, including Gao Qinglin and Zhang Chuanwei, four passports and one Hong Kong and Macao pass.
According to media reports, Gao Yan abroad may have changed his new identity, or even had a cosmetic surgery. The report also mentions that Gao Yan may be hiding in Australia.
Ten of the red arrest warrants issued by the Discipline Commission in mid-2015 were considered likely to be hiding in Australia, and high strictness was not included. At that time, however, Australian media reported that a Chinese official said that Beijing and Australia were seeking cooperation to repatriate Gaoyan from Canberra.
However, the harsh days may not be so good, physical health is a big problem. Gao Yan had suffered from lumbar spondylosis (difficulty sitting, rising and lying) when he fled, according to the 2008 arrest warrant. If hes still alive, hes 77 years old this year.
