Wife of ex-Interpol chief Meng Hongwei granted asylum in France – lawyer – World


PARIS (Reuters) – The wife of ex-Interpol chief Meng Hongwei has been granted asylum in France, said lawyer Emmanuel Marsigny, who is acting on her behalf.

Interpol, the global police coordination agency based in France, said last October that Meng had resigned as its president, days after his wife, Grace Meng, reported him missing after he travelled back to his home country of China.

Chinese prosecutors this month filed formal charges against Meng, accusing him of abuse of power and taking bribes.
