BEIJING, June 1 (Xinhua) -- Two fugitives suspected of appropriating state-owned property were repatriated from Myanmar to China on Sunday, China's top anti-graft authority said on Monday.

Qiang Tao, a 30-year-old male who used to work for a state-owned enterprise in China, allegedly colluded with Li Jiandong and embezzled a large amount of money from the enterprise, said the Communist Party of China Central Commission for Discipline Inspection and the National Supervisory Commission in a statement.

The two suspects fled on March 3 this year and were listed on the Interpol Red Notice.

Chinese police cooperated on the case with law enforcement authorities of Myanmar to arrest the two suspects.

China will continue the cooperation with relevant countries and international organizations to crack down on corruption crimes, the statement said.
