Egypt's request to arrest Americans rejected by Interpol

By Libby Lewis

Interpol says it is removing Egypt's arrest notices for a dozen American pro-democracy workers from its international database after ruling that they violate Interpol's ban on getting involved with political cases.

In addition, Interpol said in a statement released Monday it has refused to issue formal Red Notices for the pro-democracy workers on Egypt's behalf.

Last week, Security Clearance reported that Egypt filed the arrest notices for some of the American pro-democracy workers who have been charged with working for unlicensed organizations and using foreign funds to do their work.

Interpol announced Monday it has decided not to allow those arrest notices to remain in Interpol's database, after a legal review determinedEgypt's request violated Interpol's rules regarding politically motivated cases.

Interpol said Egypt's request named 12 American workers, as well as two Lebanese and one Jordanian national.

    of course like your website but you have to check the spelling on quite a few of your posts. A number of them are rife with spelling problems and I find it very bothersome to tell the truth nevertheless I will certainly come back again.

    Egypt requested NGO staffers' arrests (12 Americans,2 Lebanese,1 Jordanian) with Interpol's Red Notices- these are tghew dem. and rep. civl orgs to promote democracy in Egypt and who were released /or hsd previously left Egypt in the 'unlawful money laundering/'illiegal orgs w/ licenses crowd. Interpol does not honour Red Notices that are based on POLITICAL.,military,religious or racial character. http://www.egyptindependent.com/news/interpol-rejects-egypt-request-arrest-ngo-staffers-saying-case-political. While on the newssite- read also how Egypt rejected 8 US NGOs- including the Carter Center for Human Rights, The Coptic Orphans (Christian copts for 32 coptic centers),Seeds of Peace,LDS charity (for relief fund for water projects,agriculture,sanitary drains,training for doctors. Also the Daily News in Egypt-English language was closed. Egypt Independent had excellent opinion pieces- backgrounds- economic news- etc- now they only have like 4-10 items that give the 'news'

    Wanna bet that if it were a U.S. request for the same thing, Interpol would have continued the notices?

      interpol has been surprisigly resilient against US pressure, so i doubt that if the requests were made by the US the decision would be different.

      also, the US would probably just don its world police hat and arrest them themselves.
