Last year, nearly 300 fugitives were repatriated to China. North America, Europe and South East Asia have been found to be top destinations for criminals looking to escape the country, mostly for economic or financial crimes. China’s Ministry of Public Security is now trying to set up an annual high-level meeting with judicial officials in the United States to collaborate on returning Chinese fugitives to face justice.
