PARIS, Oct 6 (Reuters) - Interpol has asked Beijing to clarify the situation of Interpol president Meng Hongwei, who has been reported missing, the international police organisation's secretary-general Juergen Stock said on Saturday.

"Interpol has requested through official law enforcement channels clarification from China's authorities on the status of Interpol President Meng Hongwei," Stock, who carries out the day-to-day running of the organisation, said on its website.

"Interpol's General Secretariat looks forward to an official response from China's authorities to address concerns over the President's well-being," Stock added in the statement. (Reporting by Sudip Kar-Gupta Editing by Alexander Smith)

Interpol chief's wife and children are guarded by French police after phone threats - as he's held in China for 'antagonising' Communist government

French police investigating the disappearance of Interpol president Meng Hongwei have placed his family under special protection.

The country's interior ministry said they were under police supervision in Lyon - where Interpol's headquarters are located - after Meng's wife was threatened over the phone and on social media.

Meng, who held many senior positions in Chinese Government since entering politics in 1972, 'disappeared' on September 25 after travelling to his native country.

A source familiar with the investigation said the working assumption was that the 64-year-old had antagonised Chinese authorities and had been detained as a result.

China abducts the head of INTERPOL. That's not gonna sit well.

Is this an example of the Chinese becoming more desperate to crack down on bad news and antagonist.

It seems to be for me but I admit I’m biased when it comes to China.

This is one of those cases where the victim should have used some brains. Once you're the head of INTERPOL or any similar position, you don't return to China. Just imagine the torture he's going through in some Chinese dungeon. My question is what do they want from him?

Meng was not on French soil when he was last seen, according a senior French law enforcement official, who declined to say whether he was in China. The French government said that a "suitable police mechanism" was put in place to guarantee Grace Meng's safety, and that the prosecutor's office in Lyon has opened an investigation. A spokeswoman for Interpol, who declined to give her name, refused to say whether Meng had been on official business in China.
