PARIS (Dispatches) -- Dozens of French legislators have protested against the candidacy of a United Arab Emirates (UAE) Interior Ministry official for president of Interpol, calling on President Emmanuel Macron to oppose the move.
A total of 35 members of the National Assembly – the lower house of the French Parliament – and the Senate – the upper chamber – warned in a letter on Thursday that Major General Ahmed Naser al-Raisi is on his way to become the head of the Lyon-based international police agency whilst “he has a long record of multiple abuses that should keep him away from such a responsibility.”
