China brought back 1,421 fugitives last year who were suspected of duty-related crimes, with 2.95 billion yuan ($456 million) in illegal gains recovered, the country's anti-graft agencies said on Monday.

Among the fugitives were 28 who appeared on Interpol red notices, which are international listings of wanted criminals, the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection of the Communist Party of China and the National Supervisory Commission said in a statement.

The number of fugitives brought back last year was the second highest since the Fugitive Repatriation and Asset Recovery Office of the Central Anti-Corruption Coordination Group was established in 2014, it said.
