Amid issued Red warrants Interpol seeks details of Altaf’s status from UK
On Saturday, 16th June 2017, sources in the Ministry of Interior has stated that the International Criminal Police Organisation (Interpol) through its Headquarters in France has contacted the British Interpol and sought out details of the legal status of Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) founder Altaf Hussain’s stay in Britain.
The move has come after the government of Pakistan through its Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) had formally requested Interpol for the release of Hussain’s red warrant.
The founder of MQM, who is now heading the MQM-London, has been wanted by courts with regard to different criminal activities.
Pakistani authorities sought red warrants for Hussain In June, after fulfilling legal formalities. This will be the second time that the Pakistani authorities have approached Interpol for issuance of the red warrant for the London-based politician.
A similar attempt had been made in February which was not honoured by Interpol which had cited some legal hitches. In response to the government move, Interpol had reportedly stated that “it does not intervene in political and religious matters of a state.”
Interpol also sought a clarification from the government over its request for the red warrant against Hussain, besides asking for details of sedition charges against him.
An Interpol notice is an international alert circulated to communicate information about crimes, criminals and threats from police in a member state or an authorised international entity to their counterparts around the world.
