NEMETS Successfully Co-Counsels a Client, a Victim of an Abusive INTERPOL Red Notice

INTERPOL Agrees to Delete the Red Notice Due to the Government’s Flagrant Violations of the Client’s Rights to Due Process and a Fair Trial

NEMETS has successfully co-counselled an entrepreneur who has become the victim of an abusive INTERPOL Red Notice.  The client retained NEMETS after several unsuccessful attempts to have the Red Notice removed.  The Commission for the Control of INTERPOL's Files has agreed with the arguments in the client’s new application for revision that the Red Notice is in violation of Article 2 of the INTERPOL Constitution which requires that the Organization act “in the spirit of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.”  Specifically, the Commission has agreed that the government has flagrantly violated the individual’s right to due process and a fair trial and the right to be presumed innocent until proven guilty according to law secured in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and in the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.  Article 2 of the INTERPOL Constitution is among the key provisions of INTERPOL’s legal framework and is one of the cornerstones of the Organization’s redress mechanism.  We welcome INTERPOL’s decision in this case, and we hope that it continues to take abusive government requests seriously and pays special attention to all violations of human rights.
