Earlier this year China Gov't disappeared the most famous actress in the country Fan Bingbing for "tax evasion" without telling anyone anything. She was missing for nearly 3 months including no social media posts which she normally does quite frequently. She just recently resurfaced in gov't custody in a different province from where she resides and in the special facility where she is under house arrest.
Now, the Chinese head of Interpol Meng goes missing in China. Aside from this being hilarious, which it totally is, it also proves the total disregard the CCP has for it's own legal framework. Another poster speculated this has to do with international fentanyl distribution which is run out of China and I can believe maybe he was investigating that and you know actually doing his job. (Why Trump hasn't banned chemical shipments from China is beyond me but that's another topic.)
The CCP totally grabbed him and won't say anything until they have enough false evidence to trot him out for the public's consumption and charge him with a manufactured crime.
(CCP = Chinese Communist Party)
Mr Meng has 40 years of experience in criminal justice and policing in China, notably in the fields of drugs, counter-terrorism and border control, according to Interpol.

I don't know about the rest of you but I feel a whole lot safer knowing this... 😬
How is that? Am I missing something?
Majic: lol great post man!
Beijing said he was under investigation by the country's anti-corruption body for unspecified breaches of the law.
Mr Meng, who is also listed as a vice-minister of public security in China, was reported missing after travelling from the city of Lyon in France, where Interpol is based, to China
JUST IN: Interpol says it has received the resignation of Meng Hongwei, who had been reported missing, as president.

The official said Meng did arrive in China.
And we're supposed to just believe he never arrived back in China? Sounds like more bullsh*t from the Chinese government attempting a cover up.
If this guy ended up pissing off the wrong people he's going to be tough to track down. He probably ended up being sold in parts after being dissected in a Chinese death wagon. A tough way to go for sure.
Great places to live all require the prerequisite of the Execution Van.
I hate to say it but, what a sh*thole of a country.
The president of Interpol, whose wife reported him missing in China last week, has resigned after Chinese authorities announced he was under investigation, the international police organization said.
Meng Hongwei’s resignation Sunday came hours after China’s Central Commission for Discipline Inspection said Mr. Meng was under investigation by the country’s National Supervisory Commission, without specifying the allegations.
Interpol had called on Beijing to clarify Mr. Meng’s status after French officials said Mr. Meng’s wife contacted them on Thursday to say she hadn’t heard from her husband since late September when he left Interpol’s headquarters in France for a trip to China.
Fan Bingbing, one of China's most famous actresses, mysteriously disappeared for three months after being accused of tax evasion. On Wednesday she broke her silence, offering a simpering apology to Beijing and swearing to change her ways.
Her fall from grace serves as a powerful warning shot from China to show that nobody can escape their scrutiny.
(CNN) The head of Interpol, who vanished after taking a flight to Beijing, is being held and investigated for corruption, the Chinese Ministry of Public Security said in a statement Monday. Meng Hongwei, who was also a vice minister of public security in China, has been accused by the Chinese government of accepting bribes and committing unspecified other crimes. "(Meng) insisted on taking the wrong path and had only himself to blame (for his downfall)," the country's top law enforcement official, Zhao Kezhi, was quoted as saying in the statement.

Wondering if this has anything to do with Pompeo being in China as well....odd timing.
Mr Meng’s various jobs put him in close contact with Chinese leaders in the security establishment, a sector long synonymous with corruption, opacity and human rights abuses. While there are no public allegations against him, Mr Meng, a member of the ruling Communist Party, is likely to have worked closely with former security chief and Politburo Standing Committee member Zhou Yongkang, who is now serving a life sentence for corruption. Mr Zhou was one of the highest-profile figures caught up in President Xi Jinping’s sprawling campaign against graft at all levels of government, military and state industry. Officials under suspicion often disappear into the party’s investigatory body, which can hold them for months without releasing information or providing them with legal counsel.
– Were there any indications something would happen?
Mr Xi has been seeking the return of officials and businesspeople accused of fraud and corruption from abroad, sometimes with the help of Interpol in an arrangement human rights advocates say is prone to abuse. Since Mr Meng continued to hold positions in the security establishment concurrently with his role as Interpol president, that may have placed him under additional pressure. Reports from April said Mr Meng had been relieved of his position as a member of the party committee at the Ministry of Public Security, with no explanation given. That could have been a sign of his declining political fortunes, or simply a prelude to his impending retirement, given that, at 64, he was approaching the age when officials generally begin stepping down from their positions.
