In cooperation with the Fugitive Search Unit of the Bureau of Immigration and Deportation (FSU-BID) and the International Cooperation of Beijing’s Central Commission for Discipline and Inspection (CCDI), a Chinese fugitive was apprehended and turned over to the Chinese government on January 16, 2019.
Mr. Xie Haojie, a former Chinese government official who allegedly embezzled public funds equivalent to P11 billion was arrested by Philippine authorities in Pasay City.

Chinese Ambassador Zhao Jianhua expressed his gratitude to the Commission and the Duterte administration for the arrest of the fugitive.
A strong partnership and active cooperation among anti-corruption agencies from other countries are some of the key traits that make the Presidential Anti-Corruption Commission highly effective in its war against graft and corruption.
