Major fraud suspect extradited to ROK police


08:08, September 20, 2012

BEIJING, Sept. 19 (Xinhua) -- A major fraud suspect who fled to China several years ago was transferred to Republic of Korea (ROK) police on Wednesday, according to China's Ministry of Public Security.

Jang Hee Chan, an ROK national, was suspected of swindling a total of 45 billion won (about 40.35 million U.S. dollars) from 328 ROK nationals between June 3, 2005, and Dec. 29, 2006, the ministry said.

Jang fled to China on Feb. 3, 2007, and ROK police asked Chinese police to cooperate in the suspect's arrest and extradition on Feb. 28, 2007.

Police in Beijing apprehended Jang on May 31, according to the ministry.

Chinese police decided to extradite the suspect to their ROK counterparts after concluding their investigation on Jang.

Hailing the case as a successful example of international law enforcement cooperation between China and the ROK, the ministry said in a statement that China will further judicial cooperation between the two countries to crack down on transnational crimes. Most viewed commentaries
