Interpol makes official request to China for info on missing president

But it is Meng, 64, who has now vanished on a visit to his homeland, with no word about his fate since late last month, when he flew to China from the French city of Lyons where Interpol is based.

Meng's wife reported him missing to police in Lyon Thursday after she said she hadn't heard from in in 10 days and had recently received threats, a French Interior Ministry statement said.

Effective July 2018, access to full reports will only be available with a subscription.

Critics of Meng's 2016 election to Interpol's presidency said he would use the position to help China target dissidents overseas under the guise of pursuing corrupt officials.

Although the commission did not detail the allegations against Meng, its mandate is to investigate corruption cases as part of Chinese President Xi Jinping's anti-graft campaign.

Recall, October 5, Interpol began an investigation into allegations about the disappearance of the President of Interpol MENA Humvee. Interpol headquarters are located in France's Lyon.

In particular, Mr Meng probably dealt extensively with former security chief Zhou Yongkang, who is now serving a life sentence for corruption.

"France is looking into the situation of the President of Interpol and is concerned about the threats his wife has received", the statement said.

Meng has a shiny curriculum vitae, having held down various positions within China's security establishment, including as a vice-minister of public security - the national police force - since 2004.

Guardiola said on Friday playmaker Kevin De Bruyne, out since August with a knee injury, would be assessed ahead of the game. If Liverpool need to restore any confidence, they need only look back at their last three games against City -all wins.

A 40-year criminal justice veteran, the Interpol General Assembly elected Meng as president in 2016 to serve until 2020.

Interpol co-ordinates searches among its members, issuing yellow notices for missing persons and a red notice - an worldwide alert - for a wanted person.

Mr Xi has also placed a premium on obtaining the return of officials and businesspeople accused of fraud and corruption from overseas, making Mr Meng's position all the more sensitive.

China, in the midst of a weeklong holiday, had yet to comment.

Her whereabouts remain unknown. "Exchanges with Chinese authorities continue", the ministry added.

Fan is being fined around $99 million personally for tax evasion.

In France, there were only questions.

The French are "obviously aware of the disappearance but know nothing more at this stage", said one diplomatic official, unauthorised to comment publicly on the matter and speaking only on condition of anonymity.
