Interpol: Russian Leadership Would Be a Disaster

Imagine an alternative history of New York City in which John Gotti becomes police commissioner and obtains arrest warrants for the U.S. attorneys who prosecuted the Gambino crime family. Something like that is on the verge of happening to the international law-enforcement organization known as Interpol. On Wednesday, delegates to Interpol’s annual convention will be casting votes on its next president after China disappeared its last one, Meng Hongwei, in September. Meng’s wife says she has not heard from him since he flew to Beijing two months ago, and she fears he is dead. This incident put Interpol on life support. Now Interpol’s member states are reportedly poised to elect a former senior official at Russia’s interior ministry, Alexander Prokopchuk, to replace Meng. His victory would pull the plug on Interpol. It’s not just that Russia itself has abused Interpol’s system of issuing notices for arrest warrants to the national police of member states, known as red notices. “There is literally no one in the world who bears a more direct and personal responsibility for Russia’s abuse of Interpol than Alexander Prokopchuk,” writes the Heritage Foundation’s Ted Bromund. Prokopchuk heads the government bureau that sends law-enforcement information from Russia to Interpol.

Already Ukraine has threatened to leave Interpol if Prokopchuk is elected as its next president. The U.S. and its allies should do the same. Western democracies still provide nearly 80 percent of Interpol’s annual budget. That money would be better spent as seed funding for a new international law-enforcement organization that bans officials from corrupt authoritarian states, instead of electing them to leadership positions. Even if Prokopchuk is defeated this week, the damage to Interpol is already done. Just last month, another authoritarian state kidnapped and disappeared the previous Interpol president. So far China has paid no price for this crime. The fact that Prokopchuk has come this close suggests the rot inside Interpol is irreversible. Time to start over. When Nazis took over the leadership of Interpol’s predecessor, known as the International Criminal Police Congress, most nations withdrew their membership. Interpol was reborn in 1946 after the Nazis were defeated in World War II. There is still a need for an international organization that enables police agencies to share information. Interpol is no longer that organization. So America should lead the effort to build a new one. One of its first acts should be to issue a red notice for Alexander Prokopchuk, for impersonating a cop.

Countries that don't believe in the rule of law can't lead international organizations that try to enforce it.

And notice how the globalists who have long been running things now sit around scratching their balls wondering why they are so quickly losing the people.

Here is a fine illustration right here.

Did you know that the Russian constitution [conveniently] forbids criminal extradition abroad? That's why many criminals seek sanctuary in Russia.

Putin can send Russian assassins beyond Russia's borders and have no fear of extradition and trial. Now a Russian Interior Ministry Major General is poised to direct an organization whose chief function is extradition.

A new international police organization needs to be created with reserved membership.

What? Globalists? Who are you refering to? I mean, which person who has been running things is now scratching his balls and wondering?
This post sounds like it came from someone who I can't pin down right now- one of those dimbulbs who thinks that they can repeat something they read and believed and it'll be believed by everyone else that reads it.

What you posted has literally nothing, whatsoever, to do w/the OP.

Perhaps if we got someone to translate it into English from the original Bong that it was written in?

France won't extradite a citizen to a foreign country either. Has to be a French citizen, though.

I will converse about the failure of international institutions and who is to blame but I am not interested in playing games.

Nor am in interested in investing onto those who refuse to be civil.

Who are you blaming? A globalist, apparently, one who has been running things and would be dismayed by a Russian in charge of Interpol but who? Are we supposed to guess what you're talking about?

Shouldn’t Interpol focus on getting its current leader out of prison instead of leaving him there?

Leader arrested? Just elect another......I’m sure there are extradition problems!

The only good to come out of this is that it highlights the joke which is Russian rule of law. Of course, give us a few more years of Trump, and we will right there with them....if we haven't caught up already.

Rule of law? We don’t need no stinkin’ rule of law! :cool:

Screen grab. 60 Minutes, Russia Channel 1.

The hosts and panelists (all Kremlin propagandists) on the Russian discussion show 60 Minutes yesterday.

Two days ago they were laughing and giving high-fives when it seemed a Russian Interior Ministry Major General would be voted in as the new Interpol Director.

Yesterday, they are livid with rage and blame the US for their candidate's loss. Too ****ing bad. Pariah countries should never be in charge of an international LEO.

"Interpol presidency vote: " Russia " in surprise loss :hm to South Korea
Interpol has elected South Korean Kim Jong-yang as its president, rejecting the controversial Russian frontrunner.

Mr Kim was chosen by Interpol's 194 member states at a meeting of its annual congress in Dubai.

He beat Russia's Alexander Prokopchuk, who has been accused of using Interpol's arrest warrant system to target critics of the Kremlin."
