China’s anti-corruption authorities have published foreign addresses for 22 of its “most-wanted” suspects, who they believe are living around the world in plain sight.
They include five graft suspects in Canada – all of them in the western province of British Columbia. Ten are living in the United States, four in New Zealand, and one each in Sydney in Australia, London in the UK, and the tiny Caribbean nation of St Kitts and Nevis.
Chinese corruption suspect Wang Qingwei is believed to be living in Chilliwack, in the Canadian privince of British Columbia.
In a statement accompanying the list, China’s Central Commission for Discipline Inspection criticised the issuance of residency and passports via investor migration schemes, and called for the suspects’ foreign papers to be revoked.
Referring to the alleged fugitives as “a community stain”, the CCDI published their supposed addresses late Thursday on its website. The addresses are generally given by street name, without the number, although some are more specific and some less.
