The Innocent Red Notice Client: When INTERPOL is Used Improperly by Member Countries

Today's post addresses an insightful and very personal comment that was posted two days ago here. The author of that comment noted, correctly so, that INTERPOL is sometimes used to further the corrupt goals of certain law enforcement officials in various member countries. Obviously, the issuance of a Red Notice has a debilitating effect on its subject, and when the Notice is improperly issued, that effect is worsened by the very real sense of injustice which accompanies the Notice. The author of Saturday's comment reports having experienced just such an injustice, and wonders why INTERPOL seems to allow this to happen without oversight.

Unfortunately, his is not an isolated experience. INTERPOL has 188 member countries, each of which is bound by its membership conditions with INTERPOL to request Red Notices only when it has ensured that the proper legal channels have been followed. Based on that obligation, INTERPOL does assign a rather high level of trust to member countries, and Red Notices are strongly presumed to have been validly issued.
