BEIJING, Sept. 11 (Xinhua) -- Huang Ping, one of China's most wanted graft fugitives, has returned to China and turned himself in, five years after fleeing overseas, an official source announced Wednesday.

He has also been cooperative in returning his illegal gains, according to a statement by an office in charge of fugitives and asset recovery under the central anti-corruption coordination group.

Huang, formerly a general manager of a Guangdong-based state-owned enterprise, is suspected of taking bribes, the statement said.

He fled overseas in May 2014.

A procuratorate in the city of Shantou, Guangdong Province, started an investigation into his case in November 2014, and he was listed on an Interpol Red Notice in April 2015. His case was transferred to the local supervisory authority of Shantou in 2018.

Huang is the 60th person from China's top 100 fugitives listed on an Interpol Red Notice for international arrest who has returned to China.

His return shows China's resolve to hunt down fugitives, said the statement, pledging no stop in the pursuit of suspects involved in corruption.
