Interpol issues red notice for Chinese tycoon Guo Wengui 'at Beijing's request'
HONG KONG - The Interpol has issued a red notice for Chinese tycoon Guo Wengui at China's request, the South China Morning Post reported on Wednesday (April 19).
It quoted sources who were briefed on the notice as saying that Guo was suspected of bribing Ma Jian, a former vice minister at China's Ministry of State Security, with 60 million yuan (S$12.1 million).
Guo has close ties to Ma, who is facing a corruption investigation. Ma is the most senior security official to be investigated in China since former domestic security tsar Zhou Yongkang was ensnared in a graft scandal and jailed for life in 2015.
