    Detained Interpol chief Meng Hongwei’s wife says ‘everybody in China is at risk’, as she refuses to meet Beijing officials alone



    • Grace Meng says Chinese officials told her they had a letter from her husband – but she doesn’t trust them enough to take delivery by herself
    • Speaking in France, she tearfully told of her anger and ‘even hate’ for officials who detained her husband for corruption, calling it political persecution








    The wife of the former Interpol president who is being detained in China on bribery charges says she has been contacted by Chinese diplomats, who have told her they have a letter from him for her.



    Grace Meng said, however, that she would only agree to meet Chinese officials if a lawyer and reporters were present, and that her husband’s case showed “everybody in China is at risk”.


    She said Chinese officials haven’t responded since she gave them her conditions to meet.


    She said she also asked that the letter from her husband, Meng Hongwei, be given to French police, so they can give it to her. She has been living under French police protection in the French city of Lyon, where Interpol is headquartered, since she reported that her husband had gone missing while on a trip to China in late September.

    China charges former Interpol president with bribery

    Updated 7:38 am PDT, Wednesday, April 24, 2019

    BEIJING (AP) — China announced Wednesday that it has formally arrested former Interpol President Meng Hongwei on suspicion of accepting bribes.

    The indictment from the Supreme People's Procuratorate comes after Meng was expelled last month from public office and the ruling Communist Party.

    Meng's wife accused Chinese authorities of lying and questioned in a statement Wednesday whether her husband is still alive.

    Meng was elected president of the international police organization in 2016, but his four-year term was cut short when he was detained by Chinese authorities during a visit to China last October. At the time, he was also one of China's vice ministers of public security.

    The party's disciplinary committee said an investigation found that Meng was guilty of serious legal violations. It said in a statement that he abused his power in order to satisfy his family's "extravagant lifestyle."


    Meng is among a slew of high-ranking officials who have been ensnared by President Xi Jinping's sweeping crackdown on graft and perceived disloyalty. Corruption charges usually result in convictions and lengthy sentences, including life in prison.

    Meng's wife, Grace Meng, said in a statement that "Mr. Meng's human rights are still being violated. We don't even know if he is alive."


    She has remained in France with their two boys since her husband's detention in September.

    Former Interpol president Meng Hongwei confessed to taking bribes, China says

    Former Interpol chief Meng Hongwei has resurfaced for the first time since he "disappeared" during a visit home to China, reportedly pleading guilty in a Chinese court to accepting millions in bribes.

    Key points:

    • Chinese state media says Mr Meng has admitted to taking $3 million in bribes
    • Mr Meng's reported crimes date back to 2005
    • Mr Meng became Interpol president in 2016 and stood down in October 2018
