EIJING, Aug. 10 (Xinhua) -- The National Supervisory Commission, China's top anti-corruption watchdog, has brought back a total of 3,848 fugitives from abroad since it was established in early 2018, according to a report.

The work report on fugitive repatriation and return of criminal proceeds was submitted Monday by the National Supervisory Commission to an ongoing session of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress (NPC), China's top legislature.

Nearly 10 billion yuan (about 1.44 billion U.S. dollars) of illegal funds have also been brought back from abroad, said the report.

Since a nationwide supervisory reform kicked off in late 2017, China has established supervisory commissions at national, provincial, city and county levels across the country to handle duty-related law violations and crimes.

According to the Constitution and the supervision law, the National Supervisory Commission shall be responsible to the NPC and the NPC Standing Committee, and shall accept their oversight.

This is the first time the NPC Standing Committee has heard a work report of the National Supervisory Commission.
