International police infiltration by criminals

Other Names:
Insecurity of international police communications

The USA claimed that Interpol had become a liability in the fight against crime because its intelligence networks had been tapped by corrupt officials in league with terrorists and drug traffickers. A number of Interpol officials have been linked to the international drug trade in recent years. Manuel Noriega, the former Panamanian dictator convicted in 1992 of racketeering, conspiracy and trafficking, was a former chairman of Interpol's drugs committee. It is also reported that Saddam Hussein had used Iraq's membership of Interpol to continue drawing information form American police intelligence during the Gulf War.
