Prevention of Interpol Red Notice and Diffusion

The use of the Interpol system by countries around the world has been steadily increasing in recent years, with the Gulf States leading this trend. Abuse occurs most frequently when those who seek to evade justice or avoid their own country’s laws find themselves on opposite sides from those they’re seeking refuge within another’s borders. Gulf States are leading this trend, with particular concern being paid to those nations that have positioned themselves as investment destinations for foreign business people such as China and BRICS member states (Brazil).

Interpol preventive (Preemptive) request

A preventive request is an effective mechanism of blocking an illegal notice in the international wanted list through Interpol channels. Such a request can be submitted even before the real attempts of law enforcement to enter your data into the Interpol wanted database, in case you have real concerns that law enforcement will soon take this opportunity.

The effectiveness of such a mechanism is quite simple and at the same time very effective. If the country that initiates the wanted requests Interpol to issue a Red Notice against you, such an attempt will be automatically blocked by the General Secretariat of Interpol, and the verification of the legality of your wanted begins immediately.

Red notices and diffusions are requests issued by INTERPOL at the request of its member countries to alert police worldwide to wanted criminals. Red notices are issued for fugitives wanted either for prosecution or to serve a sentence. Diffusions are issued for less serious crimes, such as petty theft or terrorism. Red notices and diffusions are both published on INTERPOL’s website, and their contents are also disseminated through the organization’s global network of law enforcement agencies. Red notices and diffusions are important tools in the fight against crime, but they can also be misused. In order to prevent the misuse of red notices and diffusions, INTERPOL has put in place a number of safeguards, including a review process by an independent Commission for the Control of INTERPOL’s Files. This process ensures that red notices and diffusions are only issued for legitimate law enforcement purposes and that the rights of the person concerned are respected.

Interpol red alert, red notice, red corner

Interpol issues three types of alerts: red notices, yellow notices, and blue notices. A red notice is the closest thing to an international arrest warrant Interpol can issue. It is issued for fugitives wanted either for prosecution or with a view to extradition. A red corner notice is issued for missing persons, typically in cases where they are believed to have been abducted. Lastly, a blue notice is issued to help gather information on a person’s identity, location, or activities in relation to a crime. Interpol may also issue black notices, but these are not publicly available. Interpol has come under fire in recent years for its handling of red notices, with some critics claiming that the system is open to abuse. Interpol has taken steps to address these concerns, but the issue remains controversial.
