China’s Supreme People's Procuratorate (SPP), the country’s top prosecutor, announced on Wednesday that it recently ordered the arrest of Meng Hongwei, former president of Interpol, for suspected bribery.

The announcement comes just weeks after Meng was officially expelled from the Communist Party and removed his official posts on March 27.

Meng, the first Chinese head of Interpol, was reported missing by his wife in October 2018. Days later, the Chinese government said it had put Meng under investigation. This was followed shortly by an Interpol announcement that Meng had resigned.

He has not been seen in public since the announcement.
