China’s official government news agency Xinhua claims China has arrested 288 fugitives suspected of committing economic crimes as part of an aggressive anti-corruption effort aimed at individuals who have fled abroad, the official government news agency Xinhua said.

The campaign, dubbed Operation Fox Hunt, included the surrender of 126 suspects, Xinhua said, citing China’s Ministry of Public Security.

China has conducted activities in 56 countries, including the United States, Canada, Spain, South Korea, and South Africa, it said, citing Vice Minister of Public Security Liu Jinguo.

President Xi Jinping has conducted a sweeping drive against corruption since assuming power two years ago. Qiu Xueqiang, the Supreme People’s Procuratorate deputy procurator-general, told state media this month that the Communist Party had approved the establishment of a new anti-corruption general office under the prosecutor to strengthen that effort.

The Chinese government has given overseas graft suspects a deadline of December 1 to surrender, the report said, citing a Ministry of Public Security official. Those who surrender sooner may receive mitigated punishment.

China does not have extradition treaties with the United States, Canada and Australia – the three most popular destinations for suspected economic criminals.

In mid-October, Australian media reported that Australian police had agreed to assist China in the extradition and seizure of assets of corrupt Chinese officials.

Monday’s report follows a similar announcement at the end of October, when the government said it had captured 180 overseas fugitives.

Author of the book "Tiananmen's Tremendous Achievements" about how with the help of Tiananmen Protests, talented scholars with moral integrity seized power in the Party and state and brought prosperity to China. The second edition of the book will be published within a few days to mark the 25th anniversary of Tiananmen Protests All the parts in the first edition remain in the second edition with a few changes due to information available later and better understanding. There are also some changes for improvements of style. The new parts are Chapters 12-19 on events in China after the first edition was published: The fierce power struggle for succession between reformists and conservatives; Xi Jinping winning all elders’ support during his mysterious disappearance for 2 weeks in early September, 2012; and Xi Jinping Cyclone. Chan Kai Yee's new book: SPACE ERA STRATEGY: The Way China Beats The US An eye-opening book that tells the truth how the US is losing to China. The US is losing as it adopts the outdated strategy of Air-Sea Battle while China adopts the space era strategy to pursue integrated space and air capabilities: It is losing due to its diplomacy that has given rise to Russian-Chinese alliance. US outdated strategy has enabled China to catch up and surpass the US in key weapons: Hypersonic weapons (HGV) that Pentagon regards as the weapon that will dominate the world in the future. Aerospaceplane in China’s development of space-air bomber that can engage enemy anywhere in the world within an hour and destroy an entire aircraft carrier battle group within minutes. Anti-satellite (ASAT) weapons, anti-ASAT weapons, stealth aircrafts, drones, AEW&C, etc. The book gives detailed descriptions of China’s weapon development based on information mainly from Chinese sources that the author monitors closely. U.S. Must Not Be Beaten by China! China is not a democracy. Its political system cannot prevent the emergence of a despotic leader or stop such a leader when he begins to bring disasters to people. A few decades ago, Mao Zedong, the worst tyrant in world history did emerge and bring disasters to Chinese people. He wanted to fight a nuclear war to replace capitalism with communism but could not bring nuclear holocaust to world people as China was too weak and poor at that time. If a despot like Mao Zedong emerges when China has surpassed the US in military strength, world people will suffer the misery experienced by Chinese people in Mao era. China surpassing the US in GDP is not something to worry about as China has the heavy burden to satisfy its huge population, but China surpassing the US in military strength will be world people’s greatest concern if China remains an autocracy. US people are of much better quality than Chinese people. What they lack is a wise leader to adopt the correct strategy and diplomacy and the creative ways to use its resources in developing its military capabilities. I hope that with the emergence of a great leader, the US can put an end to its decline and remain number one in the world.

  1. Of course they do… and Xi Jinping’s son-in-law will help you do it… if you are not a political opponent. You see, rich people are fleeing China in the thousands. Taking all of their money with them. In China, you do not get rich without SOME corruption. Just like every other country. Xi’s son-in-law runs a company that transfers money to the Cayman Islands. Hu got his 2 billion out the same way. So, this is all rubbish. You can go anywhere, except maybe Russia and North Korea and keep your money. I don’t think much will go there.
