Interpol Red Notice Abuse - Expert Radha Stirling deletes another two.

Stirling removes another two Interpol Red Notices in January


IPEX (Interpol & Extradition) Reform founder, Radha Stirling, successfully removed another two wrongful Interpol Red Notices last month, releasing two innocent people from the crippling restrictions imposed by Interpol at the request of the United Arab Emirates.

We petitioned Interpol for these removals last year,” Stirling said, “Our clients have been financially punished and treated like fugitives for months because of their inappropriate listing on the Interpol database; they have been unable to travel safely, and have seen their lives ground to a halt because Interpol does not sufficiently vet Red Notice requests before implementing them; even when those requests are made by chronic abusers of the Interpol system, like the UAE.

“While we are, of course, happy and gratified to see these Red Notices removed, it is inescapable that they should never have been issued in the first place. We have over a decade’s experience winning removals for our wrongfully listed clients, and are intimately familiar with Interpol’s rules for data collection and their protocols for issuing Red, Blue, and other Notices. When we request a removal, essentially, we engage in the very vetting process Interpol should be performing before issuing a Notice. That is; we identify and articulate all of the aspects of the case which make it ineligible for a listing. This is a process which Interpol should actually implement before accepting a Red Notice request and wreaking havoc on the lives of innocent people. Instead, they issue Notices without scrutiny, and it is left to the victims of a wrongful listing to prove why it should be removed.”
