Maybe it's just me, but can they be serious - a Russian to be Interpol's next president ?

Salisbury, Crimea, Ukraine, etc, etc.....

Serious question -

How effective is Interpol? Or is much of their work not visible?

Not a name that seems to come up often any more.

The president has actually very little operational input.

More to the point, has anyone yet come up with a believable account of what has happened to Meng Hongwei?

Why has neither Interpol nor the general international community made any real noise about his disappearance?

In what way would having Alexander Prokopchuk as Interpol President be better / worse than having Meng Hongwei, who is a senior Chinese security official and a senior member of the Communist party, as President?

Friend of mine works as an analyst with police intelligence. They severely cut down, to the point of almost nothing, the amount of information they share with Interpol after Meng Hongwei was made president. She says that was a common reaction throughout the western world, effectively rendering Interpol largely useless. Putting a Russian at the helm will likely not change that policy, rather it may spread even further.

Better post this in the thread about nationalism :-) A good example

As for the matter, that guy is already a vice president. And anyway, this organization does not really work and thus there is nothing to worry about even if he would be elected (but he was not)
