Critics of Meng's 2016 election to Interpol's presidency said he would use the position to help China target dissidents overseas under the guise of pursuing corrupt officials.

Grace Meng told reporters in Lyon, France, that she thinks her husband was trying to tell her he was in danger.

At a press conference on Sunday, she said that the last text message she had received from him was the image of a knife, which she took as a sign that he was in danger. That day, he sent her the knife image from an Interpol phone four minutes after sending an initial message saying, "Wait for my call".

Asked if she believed that he has been arrested, she said: "In China, what happened, I'm not sure".
