International Insights in Criminal Law is a series of short podcasts covering different aspects of cross border crime. 


In the first episode of our series, Rebecca Niblock (Partner) & Will Hayes (Associate (Barrister)) in our Criminal Litigation team speak about Interpol and Red Notices.

They explore the following questions:

  • What is Interpol?
  • What is a Red Notice?
  • What happens to a person who is subject to a Red Notice?
  • Does Interpol check Red Notices before they are issued or do they go straight onto the database?
  • How do you challenge a Red Notice?
  • What are the key documents, rules and principles concerning Red Notices?
  • Is there anything that can be done about Red Notices being used to persecute political opponents?

Stay tuned for more episodes in the series which will cover topics including Extradition, European Arrest Warrants and Mutual Legal Assistance.
