Country (Omitted for privacy)

Charge: Embezzlement

Arguments asserted: The prosecution lacks an evidentiary basis and international interest; the case is of a predominantly political character; the proceedings do not respect the principles of due process and human rights.

Basis for CCF decision to remove the Red Notice:

  • INTERPOL found that the Applicant did not receive proper due process when the country violated its own due process laws.
  • The country violated those laws by 1) allowing an attorney, and not a judge who attended the proceedings, to sign the decision against Applicant and 2) violating its requirements for “immediacy” when the country violated Applicant’s right to defense.
