Grace Meng told journalists that she thought the knife emoji meant her husband was in danger
08 October, 2018, 05:08
Meng, 64, who is also a senior Chinese security official, had more than 40 years' experience in criminal justice, particularly in the field of drugs control, counter-terrorism, immigration and border control, before becoming president of Interpol, the worldwide criminal police organisation based in Lyon, in November 2016.
Adding to the mystery, the worldwide police agency tweeted Sunday night that it received Meng's resignation and that Kim Jong Yang of South Korea, a vice president representing Asia on Interpol's executive committee, would serve as acting president until Interpol's general assembly picks a permanent president next month. It did not say why.
The worldwide police organisation Interpol announced Sunday that it has received the resignation of its Chinese chief Meng Hongwei, who has been missing since September 25 and is suspected by Beijing of "violating the law".
Meng's wife said on Sunday that she hadn't heard from him since he left the French city of Lyon at the end of September.
But the call never came, she said, adding that she did not what happened to her husband.
Mr Meng's wife Grace, who remains in France, has been placed under police protection after receiving threats.
Asked if she believed that he has been arrested, she said: "In China, what happened, I'm not sure". "For the husband whom I deeply love, for my young children, for the people of my motherland, for all the wives and children's husbands and fathers to no longer disappear".
On Saturday, Interpol formally requested China to notify the organisation of Meng's whereabouts. She said she feared for his life. On Saturday, Interpol had demanded that China provide information about Meng's whereabouts, but officials in the country, which is now celebrating a week-long holiday, did not reply.
Speculation has mounted that Meng, who also serves as a vice minister of China's public security ministry, may have been swept up in a broad anti-corruption campaign led by President Xi Jinping.
Meng had lived with his wife and two children in France since being elected Interpol president in 2016.
She issued an emotional plea for worldwide help to find her husband.
But the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection, the party's secretive internal investigation agency, had no announcements on its website about Meng and couldn't be reached for comment. 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.
