Former Interpol President Meng Hongwei confessed to accepting more than $2 million in bribes through his positions in Chinese government, according to a Chinese court on Thursday. The No. 1 Intermediate Court in Tianjin claimed Meng expressed regret for his actions at a hearing where he read his confession. A guilty verdict is almost assured. Meng became president of Interpol in 2016 and served as the head of the international police organization until his sudden disappearance in China in September 2018.
