The Ministry of Public Security says it has seized 88 fugitives overseas for financial crimes, South China Morning Post reported.

The mainland authorities launched a campaign dubbed Fox Hunt 2014 in July to track down suspects facing charges for corruption or other economic offenses that had fled abroad. Eleven of the fugitives had been on the run for more than 10 years, including a former resident of Chongqing accused of embezzling 60 million yuan 14 years ago.
