The former president of Interpol sent his wife a message with a picture of a knife on it shortly before his unexplained disappearance in China.
Grace Meng told reporters Sunday that she believes the WhatsApp message from her husband Meng Hongwei, elected to lead the international police agency for a four-year term in 2016, was intended to warn her that he was in danger.
China’s ruling Communist Party said Monday in a short statement that it is investigating the Chinese national for bribery and other crimes. The statement did not specify whether Meng Hongwei was under arrest, or even still in China.
