MIA general is the most likely candidate for post of Interpol head
The elections of the head of Interpol were scheduled after its previous president, Meng Hongwei, comes under investigation at home.
Police Major-General and Vice-President of Interpol Aleksandr Prokopchuk has become a candidate for the post of head of the International Criminal Police Organization (Interpol).
The election of the Interpol head for a two-year term is to be held in Dubai the other day. Prokopchuk’s main competitor is the interim head of the Korean organization, Kim Jong Yang. At the same time, according to The Times, Russian is a favorite in the fight for this post.
From 2006 to 2011, Prokopchuk was deputy head of the Interpol Bureau of the Ministry of the Interior of Russia, and then headed the Russian branch of the Bureau. In 2016, he became the first Russian to occupy the post of vice-president of the organization since Russia joined Interpol.
The elections of the head of Interpol were scheduled after the previous president, Meng Hongwei, left France for his homeland and was arrested on suspicion of corruption. The authorities confirmed that Hongwei had come under investigation. However, they did not specify what exactly he was suspected of.
