“INTERPOL issues global alert following Abu Ghraib and Taji prison breakout”

July 24, 2013

INTERPOL on July 24, 2013 released the following:

“Hundreds of dangerous criminals escape during raid

LYON, France – A regional security alert has been issued by INTERPOL at the request of Iraq following a mass breakout from two Iraqi prisons involving hundreds of dangerous prisoners, many of them members of Al-Qaida.

During the night of 21 July, gunmen attacked the Taji and Abu Ghraib prisons near Baghdad using mortars to gain access and free the prisoners, killing at least 20 members of the Iraqi security forces in the process. INTERPOL said the jailbreaks constituted a major threat to global security.

Many of the escaped prisoners were senior-level Al-Qaida members, some of whom had been sentenced to death.

Following confirmation of the escape from INTERPOL’s National Central Bureau in Baghdad, the Command and Coordination Centre at the General Secretariat headquarters issued the alert to member countries in the region to warn them of the threat posed by the fugitives.

INTERPOL is working closely with NCB Baghdad to collect information on the escaped prisoners, including photographs and fingerprints, with the view to issuing a global Orange Notice, to assist law enforcement officers regionally and worldwide in their search and eventual identification of the fugitives.

An Orange Notice can be issued by INTERPOL’s General Secretariat or an NCB for any act or event that poses a serious and imminent threat to the safety of citizens around the world.

A resolution underlining the need for member countries to alert the General Secretariat to prison escapes of suspected terrorists and other dangerous criminals was adopted at the INTERPOL General Assembly in 2006.”

INTERPOL Red Notice issued for Gaddafi’s former spy chief Al-Senussi at Libya’s request

March 19, 2012

INTERPOL on March 18, 2012 released the following:

“LYON, France – At Libya’s request, INTERPOL has issued a Red Notice for Colonel Gaddafi’s former director of military intelligence, Abdullah Al-Senussi for fraud offences including embezzling public funds and misuse of power for personal benefit.

The international wanted persons alert for the 62-year-old has been circulated to all 190 INTERPOL member countries and is in addition to the Red Notice issued at the request of the International Criminal Court for Al-Senussi in September 2011 for crimes against humanity.

Following the issue of the ICC Red Notice for Al-Senussi, INTERPOL’s Fugitive Investigative Support (FIS) unit had liaised closely with North and West African countries in order to ensure that border control points were alerted to his wanted status.

Libya’s request for a Red Notice, which comes just days after their Minister of the Interior Fawzi Altaher Abdulaali addressed INTERPOL’s Heads of National Central Bureaus conference, was welcomed by INTERPOL Secretary General Ronald K. Noble.

“INTERPOL has committed itself to supporting Libya’s efforts to achieve its goal of rebuilding their country and being guided by the rule of law, and clearly their request for an INTERPOL Red Notice for Al-Senussi is a clear demonstration of their commitment to international police cooperation and justice,” said Mr Noble.

“Targeting and arresting those involved in embezzling funds and making them accountable for their actions before the courts will help Libya achieve its goal,” added the INTERPOL Chief.

INTERPOL’s FIS unit, officers from the Middle East and North Africa sub-directorate and the 24-hour Command and Coordination Centre at the General Secretariat headquarters are continuing to liaise closely with the ICC and all involved National Central Bureaus including Nouakchott where Al-Senussi was reportedly arrested.

Since March 2011, through the publication of Orange Notice global alerts against a number of Libyan nationals, including members of Colonel Gaddafi’s family and close associates, INTERPOL has been warning member states of the danger posed by the movement of these individuals and their assets following the sanctions established by United Nations Security Council resolutions 1970 and 1973 (2011).”

INTERPOL Red Notices

October 28, 2011

Within the last ten years, INTERPOL has become much more involved with their postings of the Red Notices. As you can see from a chart in INTERPOL’s 2010 Annual Report, there were only 1,077 Red Notices issued in 2000. In 2005, there were 2,343 Red Notices issued. Then last year, in 2010, there were 6,433 Red Notices issued. INTERPOL’s Red Notice system has become much more prevalent in today’s times, where one of the 188 member countries is seeking an individual based on an arrest warrant or a court order.

In fact, if you look at the number of Yellow Notices issued, INTERPOL-UN Security Council Special Notices issued, Blue Notices issued, Green Notices issued, and Orange Notices issued, you will see that all of these have increased from the prior years. The number of Black Notices issued in 2010 was more than 2005, but a few less than 2000.

INTERPOL issues Red Notice for Assaadi Gaddafi at Libya’s request

September 30, 2011

INTERPOL on September 29, 2011 released the following:

Red Notice is first such notice requested by Libya since Transitional National Council came to power

LYON, France – INTERPOL has published a Red Notice for Assaadi Gaddafi after Libyan authorities requested an internationally-wanted persons notice against the son of ousted Libyan leader Col Gaddafi for allegedly misappropriating properties through force and armed intimidation when he headed the Libyan Football Federation.

With INTERPOL confirming reports that Assaadi Gaddafi, aged 38, was last seen in Niger, the Red Notice for the Libyan national represents a regional and international alert to countries neighbouring Libya and Niger, and those with travel connections to Niger, to seek their help in locating and arresting Assaadi Gaddafi, with a view to returning him to Libya where an arrest warrant for him has been issued by the General Attorney at the Office of the Public Prosecutor.

As the Commander of military units allegedly involved in the repression of demonstrations by civilians during Libya’s uprising, Assaadi Gaddafi is also subject to a United Nations travel ban and assets freeze issued in March this year.

“The INTERPOL Red Notice against Assaadi Gaddafi will significantly restrict his ability to travel and cross international borders. It is a powerful tool that will help authorities locate and arrest him,” said INTERPOL Secretary General Ronald K. Noble.

“This first Red Notice issued at the request of Libya since the Transitional National Council came to power is a compelling demonstration of the commitment of Libya’s new authorities to work with the world police community.”

“INTERPOL will continue to offer Libya’s Transitional National Council the full support of its global resources and services and is asking its member countries in the region to take all measures to apprehend Assaadi Gaddafi,” added the head of INTERPOL.

The publication of the INTERPOL Red Notice for Assaadi Gaddafi will see INTERPOL’s Fugitive Investigative Support unit and its Command and Coordination Centre at its General Secretariat closely liaise with its National Central Bureaus in the region and worldwide to pool and update all relevant intelligence to ensure that the Libyan national is located, arrested and returned to Libya to face the serious charges against him.

Earlier this month INTERPOL issued Red Notices for Libya’s Muammar Gaddafi, his son Saif Al-Islam Gaddafi and former director of military intelligence Abdullah Al-Senussi after the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC), Luis Moreno-Ocampo, requested the world police body to issue internationally-wanted persons notices against the Libyan nationals for alleged crimes against humanity, including murder and persecution.

Since March 2011, through the publication that month of Orange Notice global alerts against Colonel Gaddafi and other Libyan nationals, including his son Assaadi Gaddafi and other members of his family and close associates, INTERPOL has been warning member states of the danger posed by the movement of these individuals and their assets following the sanctions established by United Nations Security Council resolutions 1970 and 1973 (2011) imposing a travel ban and assets freeze on the individuals.”
