Ahmad Nasir Raisi, the head of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) police, was elected the new president of Interpol today, both the AFP agency and Interpol were informed on Twitter.
Czech Police Colonel Šárka Havránková, who is now Vice President of Interpol, also applied for the highest office in this international police organization.
Raisi is facing criticism for torture and human rights abuses, according to the media, by police in the UAE under his leadership. In several countries, criminal reports have been filed against him. MENA Rights Group, which operates in Arab countries and the Middle East, points to repeated violations of rights by the UAE security forces.
The term of office of the President of Interpol, with a four-year term, is representative in many respects. The day-to-day running of the organization is handled by the Secretary General, now German Jürgen Stock.
The new President of Interpol has been elected by the 89th General Assembly, which has been meeting in Istanbul since Tuesday and which ends today. Among other things, its participants approved the accession of Micronesia, which became the 195th member of the organization, or a resolution calling for the fight against child sexual abuse via the Internet and social networks.Read more Interpol detained Michal Suchoba, and Skull Hunters also helped
