Blind Faith: INTERPOL's Relationship with Its Member Countries


In a continuation of the issue of INTERPOL's seemingly blind trust in the representations of its member countries, today's post concerns the application process of member countries requesting Red Notices from INTERPOL. And this just in . . . an article by Libby Lewis, sponsored by the International Consortium for Investigative Journalists, wherein the author asks, "Are Some Countries Abusing Interpol?"

A great, and timely, question. It goes without saying that in any group of 188 countries, some of those countries necessarily will be governed more honestly or more corruptly than others. Lewis' article accurately points out that INTERPOL's Commission for the Control of INTERPOL's files cannot investigate cases on its own. Adding to that frustrating fact is another increasingly frustrating fact: law enforcement agencies now enter the information regarding Red Notice applications on their own. Not surprisingly, this change has coincided with a rise in applications for Red Notices.
