Former Interpol President Sentenced To Prison In China For Corruption

Former Interpol President Meng Hongwei, seen here during a 2017 address in Singapore, has been sentenced to more than 13 years in prison in China for bribery.

Meng Hongwei, the global police agency’s first Chinese president, disappeared in 2018 only to turn up in custody in China. Meng pleaded guilty last year to accepting more than $2 million in bribes.
