BEIJING - A fugitive who spent almost three years hiding in Britain has returned to China and handed herself in, the disciplinary agency announced Thursday.
Chen Yijuan, who was on a list of China's 100 most-wanted fugitives, is suspected of money laundering, the Communist Party of China's (CPC's) Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) said in a statement, without elaborating.
In April last year, China released the names of 100 Chinese who had fled the country. Chen is the 20th to be brought to justice.
The 45-year-old suspect is a former employee of China Mobile in central province of Hunan. She is believed to have fled to Britain in April 2013.
