Victim outcry as 'torturer' made head of Interpol

Radha Stirling , Interpol expert and head human rights group Detained in Dubai , said the election was a 'near fatal blow to Interpol's credibility'.




She added : 'It is outrageous that an institution originally founded to uphold justice and due pro cess has chosen as its president a man implicated in serious crimes from a country that is renowned for exploiting Interpol's role as a means to extort and intimate innocent people .

'She said the UAE had been using Interpol's ' red notices ' in effect, international wanted notices - to crack down on political opposition, using them as an instrument to ' persecute foreigners, dissidents, journalists and academics'.


She accused Interpol of ' empowering authoritarian regimes around the globe ' by allowing this . A report by retired judge Sir David Calvert - Smith earlier this year also concluded that the UAE had 'hijacked' the red notices to put pressure on opponents and critics.


The ex-director of public prosecutions also highlighted #UAE funding of Interpol , saying there was 'coherent evidence that the UAE is seeking to influence 'the agency'.

Hi friend! I recently started using cbd capsules because they come in a very convenient format. Capsules are convenient to take with you on a trip and they are designed for exactly one month. It is very convenient for those who are always on the road. Due to the fact that I often suffer from headaches I began to notice that Cornbread Hemp full spectrum CBD oil with THC are great for relieving pain and I love it!
