BEIJING - Wang Qi, one of China's most wanted fugitives, has returned to China and surrendered himself to the police on Sunday, according to a statement released Monday by the Communist Party of China Central Commission for Discipline Inspection.

Wang, former director of the legal department of China Resources Microelectronics Ltd., is suspected of taking advantage of his position to unlawfully take possession of the money or property of his own company. He fled to Singapore in February 2013.

Wang, born in 1974, is the first fugitive to give up since China released information on 50 fugitives suspected of duty-related or economic crimes on June 6, according to the statement.

In April 2015, Interpol released a red notice listing 100 fugitives suspected of corruption for international arrest and Wang is one of them.

Many of the fugitives are former government or state-owned enterprise employees.
