INTERPOL – Red Notice deleted
Peters & Peters have succeeded in having a Red Notice deleted from INTERPOL in respect of a director of a UK and UAE-incorporated money services business with international operations. The Red Notice had been circulated by the United Arab Emirates (UAE) after a flawed and inadequate investigation led the UAE authorities to charge our client with money laundering and other very serious offences, which appeared to be exclusively based on unverified information reported by a major compliance provider.
In December 2020, following the submission of lengthy and detailed representations by Peters & Peters, the Commission for Control of INTERPOL’s Files agreed to delete the Red Notice. The CCF further confirmed that it would suspend any further data submitted by the UAE to allow Peters & Peters to make representations on behalf of its client at the earliest opportunity.
Peters & Peters is pleased that our client’s rights have been vindicated by INTERPOL’s decision in this matter and will continue to defend them and their interests.
