Manila hands over fugitive to BeijingChina | ASSOCIATED PRESS 17 Jan 2019
Philippine officials have turned over to China a former mainland official wanted for alleged economic crime and corruption.
Xie Haojie was arrested on Sunday in Manila in an operation coordinated with Chinese authorities.
The 49-year-old is wanted back home on charges of corruption that amounted to US$210 million (HK$1.63 billion).
Officers of the Philippine Bureau of Immigration handed him over yesterday to Chinese authorities in Manila.
Li Shulei, vice chairman of China's National Supervisory Commission, says the case involved a huge amount of money that made Xie "a very terrible social influence."
