“Chasing After Lust & Pleasure”: China’s Former Interpol Chief Gets 13 Years In Jail For Corruption & Bribes

China’s top anti-corruption body has released details on Meng Hongwei, the country’s former Interpol chief, who has now been sentenced to 13 years in jail after being found guilty of taking more than $2 million in bribes. 

The CCP says his “decadent” and “extravagant” lifestyle eventually were his downfall, according to the SCMP. The public shaming is somewhat odd for China, who likely wanted to make an example out of Hongwei. Hongwei served as the country’s Interpol president between 2016 and 2018. He disappeared on a trip home from Interpol’s headquarters in France.

He was then convicted of accepting $2 million in bribes and was jailed for 13.5 years. State media reported that he had admitted his guilt and would not appeal his charges. 

A book being circulated in China that describes the circumstances of his arrest called Hongwei an “arrogant and extravagant” person who treated his subordinates as “personal servants”.

The book says: “Ever since he began indulging in lust and pleasure, and chasing after an extravagant lifestyle, Meng Hongwei allowed himself to open up to corrupt ideas … trading power for privileges. In the end he fell into the ‘black hole’ of corruption.”

We wonder where he could ever get the idea that corruption and power are the way to prosperity in communist China?

Hongwei had assigned officers to act as his family’s “personal servants, cooks and babysitters” and “arranged for a number of cadres and active army officers to serve him and his family in Lyon of France,” the claims continue.

“He also turned a blind eye to his wife’s vice. Instead of educating her, Meng made use of his power to arrange for her to take up [senior] positions at several companies earning high salaries.”

It also accuses him of using military vehicles for his own personal use: “Since Meng’s wife was especially fond of one car, Meng asked the military to loan him the vehicle, which eventually became his wife’s personal car and was never returned.”

His wife claims that he is a “victim of political persecution”. She reported him missing in October 2018 after he vanished on a trip and sent her an emoji of a knife. 

Alfred Wu, an associate professor at the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy at the National University of Singapore said the public shaming is unusual: “[President] Xi Jinping is pushing hard to fight corruption and enforce discipline in the army and police force in order to raise their combat readiness because [he sees] them as the pillars for the party in maintaining the regime’s stability.”
