A Chinese man accused of embezzling millions of yuan and fleeing to Morocco has been extradited back to China, the Ministry of Public Security confirmed on Saturday. The financial executive was accused of using company bank account passwords to transfer money to his personal account. The man was arrested in Morocco in April and was returned to Shanghai on Saturday. The extradition is the first from Morocco to China since a treaty between the two countries came into effect in 2021. State broadcaster CCTV showed the man, identified only as Luo, signing an arrest warrant upon his arrival in China.
