December 31, 2016 08:16

China has recovered 2.3 billion yuan ($331.27 million) in losses from graft in the first 11 months of this year from across more than 70 different regions and countries, the country's corruption watchdog said on its official website on Saturday.

The news comes after Beijing shifted the focus of its corruption campaign to recover illicit funds taken overseas as part of the country's multi-agency "Sky Net" campaign launched in 2014.

The Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) said that 908 people who were on the run have been captured, 122 of whom were government officials.

The commission added that it would strengthen its campaign by tightening co-ordination, doubling-down on "Sky Net 2016" by focusing on key countries and cases and increase international cooperation.
