Since the publication of the extremely well regarded first edition of this title, the legal regime which forms the basis for INTERPOL has undergone significant change. In addition, there has been an explosive growth of litigation before the Commission for Control of INTERPOL's Files. Moreover, as INTERPOL continues to increase its effectiveness, instances of abuse and also lack of understanding about INTERPOL has prompted both criticism and calls for reform. This timely new edition provides a complete update of the rules regulating INTERPOL and of the 'case law' of the Commission for Control of INTERPOL's Files. In addition, it provides additional examination of:
– the procedure for handling claims against INTERPOL;
– the remedies available in the case of complaints;
– the interpretation of the various rules affecting individuals; and
– the differing roles of the General Secretariat and the Commission in dealing with inquiries and/or complaints by individuals.
Retaining the clarity of expression and expert analysis that were hallmarks of the first edition, this book is required reading for practitioners and scholars alike.
