We acted for a Egyptian client who was convicted in 2009, in absentia, of offences of wrongful killing and wrongful injury. As a result, our client became the subject of an INTERPOL Red Notice at the request of the Egyptian authorities.

 

We made strong and detailed submissions to INTERPOL to the effect that there was no longer any legal basis to support the Red Notice. INTERPOL have subsequently confirmed that the Red Notice in respect of our client has been deleted, and that the information provided by the Egyptian authorities is no longer held on their database.
