Demonising Dissidents: How INTERPOL is being abused by dictatorships
INTERPOL is the world's largest policing organisation, but it is being abused by countries around the world to persecute refugees, journalists & peaceful political demonstrators.
Together with the London-based organisation Fair Trials International, the Norwegian Helsinki Committee is hosting a breakfast seminar discussing this theme. At the seminar we will hear strong stories from activists who have experienced to be placed on the INTERPOL alert list, only for doing legitimate work related to their activity. The seminar takes place at Hotel Bristol, Lille Festsal Tuesday 21 October at 7:30-9:00. The seminar is an Oslo Freedom Forum side event.
