"I think its political persecution. I’m not sure he’s alive," Meng told the BBC.
The wife of former Interpol chief underlined that she had received threatening phone calls from unknown sources and slammed the Chinese authorities, saying that there was "no limit" in their actions.
On October 5, French media reported that the Interpol president disappeared after a trip to China. His spouse went to the police to signal his disappearance, which led to a probe being launched into the case by the French authorities.
The Chinese Public Security Ministry said that Meng was suspected of corruption, adding that the investigation reflected the Communist Party's resoluteness to combat corruption and demonstrated that everyone was equal before the law.
