Meng Hongwei was not on French soil when he was last seen, according a senior French law enforcement official, who declined to say whether he was in China.

Meng's wife went to police in Lyon, where Interpol is based, Thursday night to report his disappearance, according to a statement released by the French Interior Ministry on Friday. The spouse told police that she had last heard from him 10 days ago and had recently received threats via social networks and by telephone, according to the statement. "France is looking into the situation of the President of Interpol and is concerned about the threats his wife has received," the statement said.

He’s dead.

China probably.

Oh, no. What did he know about the Clintons?

Just kidding. Mostly just kidding.

People need to understand that life is precarious on this earth.

I have been threatened more than once just for having a job that involved the US government.

There are various Chinese businessmen who up and vanish....some reappearing months later. About three years ago....some shoe company CEO and the financial officer disappeared for three months. The company was surging up and actually making a fair amount of profit. After they reappeared....nothing much was said. It might be Chinese intelligence...or the Chinese mafia.

This guy is a high level Chi-com:

“Meng Hongwei, 64, who is also a vice-minister at China’s Ministry of Public Security”

Which Einstein thought it was a good idea to put this guy in charge of international security? Appears he’s caught up in a classic internal commie purge.

The Chinese president of Interpol, the international police agency, has vanished.

I've always wondered how it's done.

Yeah. That was my comment.

A Chi-Com? In charge of Interpol, for God’s sake?

Guy like him used to be a major TARGET of Interpol just two decades ago.

How the hell did he end up in charge?! With access to all the intel from the US alphabet soup agencies?

Beyond belief.

Doesn't do much for your international standing when it looks like you've bumped off the head of Interpol. I can't imagine this was anything the head commies did, not if they're in their right minds.

I'm expecting to see any number of things go off the rails in China, until the head commies are deposed or really eager to deal. Gloves are off.

He might have gone for a hike on the Appalachian Trail, so they might want to start looking in Buenos Aires.

He hasn’t disappeared, just blended back into the Politburo safe home after successfully transferring tons of important data. Huge spying implications. Why would anyone think otherwise? What better place to find incriminating info than Interpol? The repercussions will be forever.

The Chinese president of Interpol, the international police agency.....
Unbelieveable! One has to wonder if we are living in some kind of alternate universe some times. This is truly crazy. Why haven’t we been aware of this before.
