Beijing: A suspect involved in gang-related crimes was extradited to China from the Brazilian city of Sao Paulo, the first ever delivery of a Chinese suspect from Brazil.
The suspect, whose surname is Huang, was a former mafia-like gang leader charged with crimes including organising racketeering and gambling, carrying out illegal detentions and bullying locals in Nan’an city, Fujian province, since 2009, said a statement issued by China’s Ministry of Public Security.
Huang escaped an arrest in August 2010, and absconded to Brazil, where the fugitive on Interpol’s red notice list was caught by local police in August, 2018.
In June, Brazil’s Supreme Federal Court agreed to extradite the suspect. Escorted by Chinese police, Huang flew back to China on Saturday. — China Daily/Asia News Network
