Fraud fugitive detained

A FUGITIVE allegedly involved in a 290 million yuan (US$42.44 million) bank fraud has been caught in Beijing, a newspaper reported yesterday.

The suspect, surnamed Jiang, was wanted by the public security department of Heilongjiang Province in northeast China for allegedly stealing 290 million yuan with an accomplice from a sub-branch of the Bank of China in Heilongjiang in 2002, according to the Beijing Evening News.

Jiang, 35, had fled overseas after police put him on the want list.

He returned home on Monday by taking a flight from South Korea to Beijing and was identified by border officers at Beijing Capital International Airport.

Jiang has been referred to Heilongjiang police. Jiang was reportedly part of a 1 billion yuan plot, mainly by three Bank of China employees, who were now under Canadian police surveillance.

Gao Shan, who lives with his family in Vancouver, is alleged to have stolen the money from the BOC sub-branch in Harbin, Heilongjiang's capital, where he was the branch manager.

His alleged accomplices, Li Dongzhe and Li Donghu, are also in Vancouver.

Zhang Xiaoguang, the former chairman of the Shanghai-listed Northeast Expressway Co, was handed a death sentence with a two-year reprieve in 2007 after being convicted of five charges including offering "convenience" to Gao.
