Peters & Peters successful in securing deletion of UAE INTERPOL diffusions following revision application

Following detailed submissions from Peters & Peters, the Commission for the Control of INTERPOL’s Files (CCF) has quashed two Red Notices issued at the request of the United Arab Emirates against our client, an international businessman subject to “bounced cheque” (unfunded cheque) offences arising out of commercial loan agreements.

Our submissions demonstrated that our client’s circumstances arose from a private/commercial dispute and also addressed the recent decriminalisation of certain offences in the UAE.

Maintaining the client’s data on INTERPOL’s system, therefore, would have been incompatible with INTERPOL’s data processing rules.
