Yet Another Slap in the Face of Ivan Geshev and the Bulgarian Prosecution: Interpol Found that the Red Notice against me Violates the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, as well as the Organization´s Constitution and RulesAugust 10th, 2022
I am sharing news that you will not hear from the Bulgarian Prosecutor´s Office. At the beginning of this month, the Commission for the Control of Files at Interpol notified me that it had cancelled the Red Notice issued against me by the Bulgarian Prosecutor’s Office in 2014. The Commission for the Control of Files found that this notice violated the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, as well as the Constitution and the Rules of the organization.
In its decision, the Commission for the Control of Files at Interpol refers to Article 2 of Interpol’s Constitution which obliges the organization to promote police cooperation “in the spirit of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights”. According to the Commission for the Control of Files, the Red Notice against me violates Article 10(1) and Article 12(1) of the Rules on the Control of Information and Access to INTERPOL’s Files. Article 10(1) forbids processing of data in the INTERPOL Information System for a purpose which is not “in conformity with the Organization’s aims and activities.” Article 12(1) forbids the misuse of data.
The Commission for the Control of Files reviewed the Red Notice against me following a request for deletion of data which I had submitted earlier in accordance with Interpol’s Rules.
This is yet another slap from Interpol against Ivan Geshev and the Bulgarian Prosecutor’s Office. Interpol had already canceled another Red Notice against me, a Red Notice against my wife and three diffusions against my daughter as politically motivated. De facto, Interpol has found six abuses of Interpol’s system by the Bulgarian Prosecutor´s Office only against my family. Objectively, we can talk about abuses of office committed by Ivan Geshev.
For years, the Prosecutor´s Office and its subservient media speculated about Interpol, misled the public about Interpol´s role, and claimed that the organization had established my guilt. With the latest decision by the Commission for the Control of Files, their deliberate lies have been completely exposed.
Lastly, I would like to comment on the speculations regarding my Red Notice from June this year. During its review, Interpol’s Commission for the Control of Files determined that there was sufficient preliminary data to justify the temporary deletion of my data pending the final completion of its investigation. For these reasons, my name was deleted from Interpol’s system in June this year. With its latest decision, the same commission has permanently deleted the data on me submitted by Ivan Geshev.
