The Emirati General Ahmed Nasser Al-Raisi, targeted by several complaints for “torture” in France and Turkey, was elected on Thursday in Istanbul president of Interpol, announced the police cooperation agency.

“Mr. Ahmed Nasser Al-Raisi (…) has been elected to the post of president,” Interpol said on Twitter. The function of president is essentially honorary – the real boss of the organization being its Secretary General -, but human rights organizations and European elected officials were opposed to the election of Ahmed Nasser Al- Raisi, believing that it would undermine Interpol’s mission.
