Abuse of Interpol red notices

According to this report, the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe recently adopted a resolution condemning the abuse of Interpol red notices, which “seek the location and arrest of a person wanted by a judicial jurisdiction or an international tribunal with a view to his/her extradition.” A committee of the Assembly found that the system “has been abused by some member States to persecute political opponents beyond their borders.” The resolution and supporting materials are available here.
