NEMETS joins the group of over twenty attorneys, members of the E.U. and U.K. parliaments, scholars, human rights activists and organizations in signing an open letter to the INTERPOL Secretary General demanding that the Organization prevent the abuse of its Stolen and Lost Travel Documents database (SLTD) by Turkey’s government. In this regard, Yuriy Nemets, NEMETS’ managing member, had this to say: "The continued extensive abuse of the SLTD database is yet another piece of evidence that non-democratic regimes view INTERPOL as a powerful tool of persecution and will not stop abusing the Organization's resources until they have exhausted them. What is even more alarming is that INTERPOL does not seem to see this as a problem which demands an immediate solution."
