Chinese smuggler repatriated from Peru

Beijing—A Chinese crude soybean oil smuggler was repatriated from Peru on Monday 18 years after he fled abroad, according to the General Administration of Customs.
The man, surnamed Huang, evaded taxes of over 700 million yuan (104.79 million U.S. dollars) from 1996 to 1998 through selling 107,000 tonnes of smuggled crude soybean oil.
Huang and his two associates fled to the United States in 1998.
In 2001, at the request of Chinese authorities, the Interpol issued a global arrest warrant for Huang. In 2008, Huang was caught by the Interpol in Peru and China started negotiation on repatriating Huang with Peruvian authorities.
