CHANGSHA -- One of China's top fugitives returned from Britain on Thursday after fleeing in 2013.

Chen Yijuan, 46, former staff member of China Mobile Communication Corporation's Hunan branch is suspected of money laundering. She surrendered to the police and returned voluntarily after being persuaded by Chinese authorities.

China launched its "Sky Net" campaign in April, 2015, with aims to bring back 100 suspects who were accused of economic crimes and have fled overseas.

Police said Chen was the twentieth suspect arrested on the list and the first from the central province of Hunan.

Pei Jianqiang, former department director of China Enterprise International Cooperation Co. and another fugitive on the list, was brought home on Jan. 2 from the Republic of Guinea, where he fled in 2009.

Huang Yurong, former Party chief of Henan Provincial Highway Administration, surrendered herself to the police and returned from the United States to where she fled in 2002.
