Wang Junwen, a fugitive suspected of taking bribes and fled overseas in 2003, returned to the Chinese mainland Tuesday to hand himself in to authorities, China's top anti-graft authority announced Wednesday.
Wang, born in 1951, was a former senior Party official at the Hainan provincial economic cooperation department and former head of a state-owned enterprise in the province, according to a statement by the Communist Party of China Central Commission for Discipline Inspection and the National Supervisory Commission.
The statement said Wang was cooperating in returning his illegal gains.
He is the sixth fugitive to return to China and turn himself in after an office in charge of fugitive repatriation and asset recovery under China's central anti-corruption coordination group released evidence related to 50 fugitives.
According to information released by the office earlier, Wang was the former general manager of Hainan Textiles Industry Company Limited and former chairman of Hainan Xingye Polyester Company Limited. He fled to Hong Kong in September 2003.
