World policing agency INTERPOL has issued its Red Notices for two former FIFA officials and four corporate executives.
At the request of US authorities, for charges including racketeering, conspiracy and corruption, former FIFA vice president Jack Warner and former FIFA executive committee member Nicolás Leoz were the top names added tothe INTERPOL MOST WANTED LIST, which also now includes 3 heads of marketing company’s based in Argentina, and the owner of a Brazilian broadcasting company.
Red Notices are one of the ways in which INTERPOL informs its almost 200 member countries that an arrest warrant has been issued by a judicial authority. A Red Notice is not an international arrest warrant, and INTERPOL cannot compel any member country to arrest the subject of a Red Notice. But INTERPOL will assist in identifying or locating people for arrest and extradition.
Warner of T&T and Leoz of Paraguay, have already been arrested in their home counties. Warner has since been released and
Leoz is under house arrest. The Interpol “red notice” means they risk arrest anywhere they attempt to travel.
