[Ed. – Obvious questions: who thinks that’s a good idea, and how is anyone still in Interpol?]
A top Russian law enforcement official is in line to take the helm of INTERPOL, at a time when the international policing agency is already reeling as a result of another repressive regime’s interference.
British officials have told The Times that Alexander Prokopchuk, a senior ministry of internal affairs official and one of INTERPOL’s four vice presidents, will likely be elected its next president.
INTERPOL’s annual general assembly, currently underway in Dubai, is scheduled to fill the post on Wednesday.
