Wei Qi, a graft fugitive suspected of duty-related crimes, has returned to China, surrendering to the authorities, said an official source.

Born in May 1960, Wei used to own a private company based in Harbin in the northeast Heilongjiang province. He had allegedly offered bribes to state functionaries and fled overseas in September 2014.

In March 2015, a county-level procuratorial agency launched an investigation into the case. An Interpol Red Notice was issued against Wei in March 2016.

His surrender marks a significant achievement in implementing the policy of punishing both parties involved in corruption -- those who take bribes and those who offer them -- and China's continued hunt for duty-related crime suspects, said an official in charge of fugitive repatriation and asset recovery.

China will continue cooperation with anti-graft agencies worldwide and remain relentless in pursuing fugitives and embezzled assets, the official added.
