A book by Christopher David and Nicholas Hearn, published by Bloomsbury Professional.

Red Notices are issued by INTERPOL in response to a request by a national police force to locate a wanted person and have them arrested for the purposes of extradition to the requesting state. There is no single practitioner guide to this important process and, in fact, it is an area of law that is extremely difficult to get clarity on.

A Practical Guide to INTERPOL and Red Notices puts context around red notices, including the history and structure of INTERPOL, as well as providing the legal basis for finding out where a red notice exists and, if so, how it might be challenged. It also explains how extradition engages with INTERPOL and red notices, with mention of EAWs (European Arrest Warrants). Practical guidance will be way of case studies and tactics/tips based on the authors' own experiences.

The book also includes a comprehensive set of Appendices of all relevant INTERPOL Resolutions, Statues and Operating Rules, as at present there is no single source for these other than being spread around INTERPOL's website.

The content of this article is intended to provide a general guide to the subject matter. Specialist advice should be sought about your specific circumstances.
