Liu Changkai, one of China’s most wanted fugitives, has returned to China and turned himself in to the police, the anti-corruption authority said Monday.

Liu, 56, a former president of Beijing Liyuan Driving School, fled overseas in October 1999 after being accused of fraud, according to a statement released by the Communist Party of China Central Commission for Discipline Inspection.

In April 2015, Interpol issued a “red notice” for 100 corruption fugitives wanted by China. Many of the fugitives were former government staff or employees of state-owned enterprises.

Liu is the 44th on the list to have returned.

Liu’s return, once again, is a warning for other fugitives and proves there is no safe haven overseas, according to the statement.
