Lawmakers from 20 countries oppose Chinese nominee to Interpol committee

| @indiablooms | 17 Nov 2021, 10:58 pm

The Chinese government's nominee to global policing organisation Interpol has been opposed by over four dozen lawmakers from 20 countries.

More than four dozen lawmakers from 20 countries have written to their governments opposing the nomination of Hu Binchen from China’s Ministry of Public Security for an oversight position at global policing organisation Interpol, The South China Morning Post.

Hu has been put forward as a candidate for the body’s 13-member executive committee, which supervises the work of Interpol’s general secretariat.

The election for the committee, which meets three times a year and sets organisational policy and direction, will be held next week during Interpol’s general assembly in Turkey, the newspaper reported.

The legislators, members of the Inter-Parliamentary Alliance on China, said Hu’s potential election raised alarm given concerns over China’s attempts to enforce its laws abroad and alleged misuse of Interpol’s red notices, or alert system, the newspaper reported.
