BEIJING China.- The Chinese justice accused Meng Hongwei, former President of the International Criminal Police organization (Interpol) and Deputy Minister of Public Security of receiving bribes, as part of an open investigation on him.

The Ministry of Public Security reported that the 64-year-old official is also suspected of violating the laws of the country and committing other crimes, and indicated that a timely and absolutely correct process is underway to clarify his infringements.

Previously, the National Investigation Commission, responsible for investigating corruption offenses among Chinese public servants, had reported on Meng’s arrest.

In the midst of the investigation, the official immediately resigned his position to the head of Interpol and instead it was appointed South Korean Kim Jong Yang, who served as vice-president of the Executive Committee.
