Interpol says missing president has resigned after wife reveals ominous message
Fox News ^ | 10/7/18 | Samuel Chamberlain

The international police agency Interpol announced Sunday that its missing president had resigned "with immediate effect" after China said the man was under investigation over unspecified legal violations and his wife told reporters that he had texted her an image of a knife, leading her to believe he was in danger.

Grace Meng told reporters that she had not heard from her husband, Meng Hongwei, since Sept. 25. That day, he sent her the knife image from an Interpol phone four minutes after sending an initial message saying, "Wait for my call." She said the call never came and she does not know what happened to him, adding that her husband was in China when he sent the message.

The Interpol statement did not say exactly why Meng resigned. However, a watchdog for China's ruling Communist Party said in a brief statement on its website that Meng was "suspected of violating the law and is currently under the monitoring and investigation" of China's new anti-corruption body, the National Supervision Commission.

Asked if she believed that he has been arrested, Grace Meng said: "In China, what happened, I'm not sure."

Mrs. Meng was accompanied to her news conference at a Lyon hotel by two French police officers who were assigned to look after her. She would not allow reporters to show her face, saying she feared for her own safety and the safety of her children. Her voice trembled with emotion as she read a prepared statement.

And how could a top official in China's equivalent of the KGB even be made the head of Interpol anyway?

"...non-democratic states use Interpol in order to harass opposition politicians, journalists, human rights activists and businessmen. According to them, countries that frequently abuse the Interpol system include: China,[44] Russia, Iran, Turkey, Kazakhstan, Belarus, Tunisia." (Wikipedia)

"Due to the lack of independent access to prisoners and prisons, it was impossible to ascertain the number of Tibetan political prisoners. A number of the Tibetans arrested or detained in the days and weeks following the spring 2008 protests were sentenced throughout 2010. Many prisoners were held in the extrajudicial RTL prisons operated by the Ministry of Public Security and never appeared in public court." -- US State Department

You can make a list of top 5 heavy handed governments, but China’s in there somewhere.

Now, that statement is downright funny. You do know that Interpol used to be run by the Gestapo, don't you?

Talk about the subject for a screenplay and movie. Wow.

Was the guy one of the Double-Agents outed by the Witch’s lack or non-existent security? A whole Chinese Spy-Ring was rolled up because of that PoS

The question asked at the top of your post is what I was wondering. PC gone amuk will kill us.

I did not know that. Interpol generally gets very little attention, and I’m not surprised to hear that it has a corrupt past and corruption in the present, but I would think they might have cleaned it up some since it collaborated with the Nazis. Volkswagen presumably has.

No big deal. It’s not like the Attorney General of the United States is missing...
