BEIJING, Jan. 19-- A total of 49 fugitive suspects of corruption and other duty-related crimes were returned to China from overseas by prosecutors nationwide in 2014, an official of the Supreme People's Procuratorate (SPP) said Monday.

Xu Jinhui, the SPP's anti-bribery head, told a press conference that the fugitive suspects were persuaded back or arrested from 17 countries and regions, including the United States, Britain and Canada.

Among them, 16 cases involved more than one million yuan (about 160,771 U.S. dollars) and four involved more than ten million yuan, according to Xu.

The SPP launched a half-year campaign targeting fugitive suspects of corruption and other duty-related crimes, which started from October.
