International police group. The only group which IfS-liason Euan Grant specifically remarked "probably not" to make representations to, seemingly implying Interpol to be a substantially independent entity.

Interpol is an international police group which may have more operational independence from The Deep State than other such international bodies.

Institute for Statecraft comment

Euan Grant, in the middle of a list of groups to which he could offer workshops or "completed packages", specifically commented "(probably not Interpol)"[1]

History

The agency traces it's origins back to the International Anti-Anarchist Conference of 1889[2][3][4][5] and the first International Criminal Police Congress of 1914.[6] [7]

Activities

In May 2018 Bill Browder was arrested in Spain on the request of Russia through Interpol channels.[8]

In May 2020 Interpol issued a red notice for Anne Sacoolas, who in 2019 fled from the UK after driving a car which killed a 19 year old motorcyclist, despite the UK government claiming she had "diplomatic immunity".[9]

In August 2020 Interpol wrote that it had observed an "alarming rate" of cyberattacks targeting governments and corporations as employees and companies around the world.[10]
