One-Third of China's Most Wanted Fugitives Seized, Anti-Graft Agency Says

(Beijing) – The ongoing anti-graft campaign has netted one in three suspects on China's "100 most wanted" list – mostly government officials hiding overseas – to stand trial in China as of July 15, the Communist Party's corruption watchdog said.

Some were nabbed after joint search operations by Chinese and foreign law enforcement officers, while others allegedly returned voluntarily, the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) said in a statement on August 20. The fugitives were identified as part of a government crackdown called "Skynet" launched in April 2015.
