Key words V: Chasing the fox
- Some 398 corrupt officials and suspects in economic crimes who fled the county have been captured in Fox Hunt 2014, an operation to hunt down the fugitives.
The operation has aimed to block the last route to refuge for corrupt officials at a time when China's major crackdown on graft has already narrowed opportunities for abuse of power.
- Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) member economies signed the Beijing Declaration on Fighting Corruption, pledging to eliminate corruption through extradition and judicial assistance, and adopt more flexible measures to recover the proceeds of corruption within the law of the APEC economies.
