Prosecutors have formally filed charges against former Interpol president Meng Hongwei at a Tianjin court for allegedly taking advantage of his official positions to acquire what it called an “huge amount” of bribes, the Supreme People's Procuratorate (SPP), China’s top prosecutor, announced Friday.
Prosecutors have informed Meng about his rights, as well as heard Meng and his lawyer’s opinions, SPP said.
In April, the top prosecutor called for Meng’s arrest on suspicion of bribery.
