INTERPOL calls on public to help track international fugitives in global operation

June 11, 2012

INTERPOL on June 11, 2012 released the following:

“LYON, France – An INTERPOL operation targeting fugitives wanted for offences including murder, robbery, kidnapping and drug trafficking is calling for the public’s help in locating and bringing them to justice.

Operation Infra-Red (International Fugitive Round Up and Arrest – Red Notices) 2012 was launched by the world police body on 14 May, focusing on more than 500 fugitives wanted by 57 member countries and has already led to the arrest or location of internationally-wanted people worldwide.

It was within the framework of Operation Infra-Red that suspected killer, Luka Rocco Magnotta, was arrested in Germany just four days after INTERPOL issued a Red Notice for the 29-year-old at the request of Canadian authorities.

A number of Infra-Red 2012 targets wanted for a range of offences are now being specifically highlighted as part of the public appeal for assistance.

Stefano Carvelli, Head of INTERPOL’s Fugitive Investigative Support unit, which is coordinating Infra-Red, said the Magnotta case highlights the vital contribution that the public can make in helping police find criminals on the run.

“Often Infra-Red cases are those where all police leads have been exhausted and fresh information is needed to give the investigations new drive, which is why we are appealing to the public to assist us,” said Mr Carvelli.

“I would urge everyone to look closely at the photos of these individuals, think about people they have met either in the real world or via social networking sites, could they be one of these fugitives?

“Any information at all could prove crucial in identifying and bringing these people to justice, some of whom have been hiding for years,” added Mr Carvelli.

Since the initial Infra-Red in 2010 similar operations, Infra-SA (South America) and Infra-SEA (South East Asia) have been coordinated by INTERPOL, resulting in arrests around the globe, including most recently that of Stanislav Molodyakov, wanted by Russian authorities in connection with child sex crime offences who was taken into custody by Cambodian police on Monday 4 June.

The initial phase of operation Infra-Red 2012 saw investigators from 28 of the participating countries and Europol gather at the INTERPOL General Secretariat headquarters in Lyon, France to directly share information on suspects.

Details of the wanted persons, their suspected locations and any other potentially identifying information was collated and analysed, before being sent to involved countries through INTERPOL’s global network of 190 National Central Bureaus for action.

Information on the whereabouts of the targets of Operation Infra-Red 2012 or any internationally-wanted persons can be sent to INTERPOL’s Fugitive Investigative Support unit. Information can also be given anonymously to any national Crime Stoppers programme, or via www.csiworld.org”

Two female drug dealers arrested in Dubai

Two African female drug dealers who managed to skip airport customs in other countries were seized separately in Dubai, with one hiding costly cocaine in her hair and the other concealing heroin in her shoes.

Customs inspectors at Dubai airport caught the two in April after receiving information by the emirate’s counter-drug squads that two African women might be trying to smuggle narcotics through Dubai.

The first women, a 25-year-old Kenya, arrived from Argentina on April 4 and Dubai airport female inspectors noticed an unusual bulge in her hair.

When they asked her about the bulge, the woman said she was using a special hair glue but the inspectors were not convinced.

“When they looked into her hair, they found 10 plastic rolls inside hair curls….they contained nearly 360 gm of cocaine which is known to be very expensive compared with other drugs,” newspapers said, quoting Major General Abdul Jalil Al Asmawi, head of the counter-narcotics department.

He told newspapers that the woman confessed she had received the stuff from a female South African friend who lives in Argentina. “She said she was asked by that woman to deliver the drugs to a man in Johannesburg in return for a sum of money,” he said, adding that the woman has been referred to the competent authorities in the emirate.

The other woman, 28, arrived in Dubai on April 17 and attracted the attention of customs authorities by her confused behaviour, Asmawi said.

He said the woman had come from Faisal Abad and was heading for Nairobi, adding that around 205 kg of heroin were found concealed in one shoe and 198 gm in the other. He said the woman told police she had received the stuff from a Nigerian friend residing in Pakistan and that she asked her to deliver the drugs to a man in Malawi who was to meet her at a hotel. “She said she agreed to do the job in return for 50 bags of rice.””
