BEIJING - Chinese anti-corruption authorities and police have captured a fugitive who fled abroad over 10 years ago, the top anti-graft authority said Thursday.

Xi Fei, 56, fled abroad after the procuratorial agency of Haidian district, Beijing, decided to investigate his suspected embezzlement in 2003, according to a report by the Communist Party of China Central Commission for Discipline Inspection and the National Supervisory Commission.

He was recently found to have secretly returned to Beijing and the Haidian supervisory commission, working with police authorities, apprehended him.

A source with the office in charge of fugitive repatriation and asset recovery under China's central anti-corruption coordination group said that China would strengthen work to hunt down fugitives overseas and maintain a tough stance, according to the report.
