Kim Jong Yang Interpol President
Kim Jong Yang was elected as Interpol’s president on Wednesday 21st November 2018 in Dubai, edging out a longtime veteran of Russia’s security services Alexander Prokopchuk who was strongly opposed by the U.S., Britain and other European nations.
Kim’s election was seen as a victory for the White House and its European partners, who had lobbied against Alexander Prokopchuk’s attempts to be named the next president of the policing organization.
The U.S. and others expressed concern that if Russia’s candidate had been elected, it would lead to further Kremlin abuses of Interpol’s red notice system to go after political opponents and fugitive dissidents.
He will serve until 2020, completing the four-year mandate of his predecessor, Meng Hongwei, who was detained in China as part of a wide anti-corruption sweep.
