Interpol Response re. Green Notices

Submitted by Steve: Some off you are aware that I sent in a inquiry to Interpol that questioned their standards for issuing green notices…well I got a response back from Interpol, Lyon Paris (Yes the mothership AJ)

In my letter I stated that I have not yet had a green notice issued against me (haven’t travel abroad yet) but asked the question are they appealable. I pointed out to them that the US government does not assess any Registered Sex Offender for dangerousness they just send out blanket notices to Interpol.

I posted, in the International travel thread, the standards to which Interpol sends green notices and somebody has to be a threat. Now my interpretation, of course, is that there is no way for the US government to know I’m a threat without an assessment.

I let them know I was traveling in June to Paris with my family and my conviction was 21 years ago and had nothing to do with child trafficking.

Here’s some of the response:

“We acknowledge receipt of your correspondence addressed to the Commission for the Control of Interpol’s files.”

“Insofar as you have provided the required documents (copy of my passport)  your request is admissible.”

“The following procedure applies to the processing of admissible requests:
The commission first checks whether any data concerning the Applicant are being processed in Interpol’s information system (probably none since I haven’t traveled) If so the commission examines THE COMPLIANCE OF THE PROCESSING OF THESE DATA WITH INTERPOL’S RULES (BINGO someone is listening) on the basis of the information available to it. In this context it considers ALL ELEMENTS and documents provided by the Applicant in support of his/her request.”

“In accordance with article 34 of it’s statute, the commission may seek additional information or clarification form the applicant…..”

“When the commission considers it has received sufficient information to reach a conclusion on a request, it shall generally decide on the request for deletion/and or correction of data within 9 months form the date the request was ruled admissible.”

“The commission shall provide it’s decision to the INTERPOL General Secretariat within one month from when the decision was made”

“The commission shall provide the applicant a written decision and reasoned decision no later than one month from the date on which the Commission received notification.”

“We Will keep you informed of further developments in due course.”

Yours Faithfully,
Secretariat to the Commission for the Control of INTERPOL files.

I have no idea where this is going to go and have no real expectations but it sure is refreshing to actually get a response back unlike trying to get FOIA from any of our government entities.

I would suggest anyone that has had a green notice experience to write them and try to appeal it. Question their standards and reiterate our government doesn’t assess anyone so how can we be considered a threat.
