Interpol Red Notices

The UK left the EU on 31 January 2020. A transition period, during which EU laws continue to apply in the UK, is due to end on 31 December 2020. The UK/EU Withdrawal Agreement sets out transitional arrangements and negotiations for the future UK/EU relationship are ongoing.

Interpol Red Notices are an effective way for countries to both identify those they wish to bring back to their jurisdiction to face trial and to fetter the international movement of those individuals. Interpol's mandate is to remain politically neutral, and it will process requests for Red Notices in accordance with its Charter. We have extensive experience in making representations to Interpol under the terms of its Charter. Our team of defence experts has acted for a number of high-profile individuals from various countries around the world for whom we have achieved significant success by persuading Interpol to withdraw Red Notices based on the political motivations of the requesting State. Whether a client has been the target of a corporate raid by the requesting State or the victim of baseless charges brought to supplement civil litigation, we have been able to make effective representations to Interpol and demonstrate the true position.

We have acted for clients from Indonesia, India, Iran, Pakistan, the Russian Federation; the Ukraine; Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, China, the UAE and Eswanti (Swaziland)  to name a few, and assisted them in having their Red Notices removed. We regularly work with lawyers around the world to ensure we have both local knowledge and access to officials in target jurisdictions so as to better press our clients' case.
