An American suspect fills out legal documents at a detention center in Shanghai before he was repatriated to the United States yesterday.

An American suspect, alleged to have been involved in car theft in the United States, was repatriated to the US yesterday.

Chinese police handed him over to US law enforcement officers at Shanghai Pudong International Airport.

The man, whose name was not revealed, had been working as an English teacher in Shanghai since November 2009. He is not known to have committed an unlawful act during his time in the city, according to police.

Repatriation was demanded by US law enforcement authorities and was the latest result of Sino-US cooperation in chasing fugitives and illicit money since the countries’ first law enforcement and cyber security dialogue in October.

This year, China has repatriated four US fugitives, and the US has handed over two fugitives to China.
