Stirling’s years of experience assisting victims of wrongful Red Notices have given her unparalleled insight and appreciation for how an Interpol listing can have devastating consequences for individuals caught in the international policing organisation’s database. She understands the profound trauma and difficulties associated with such listings: "Being wrongfully listed on Interpol can be life-altering, causing immense personal and professional disruptions. It consumes precious time, drains financial resources, and can irreparably damage one's reputation. Innocent individuals victimised by harassment, intimidation, and persecution, due to the misuse of Interpol by habitual offenders can struggle for years to recover from their ordeals."

Recognizing the urgency to protect individuals' rights and liberties, IPEX has expanded its services to include Interpol Prevention. By engaging our expert team, clients can proactively safeguard themselves against potential wrongful listings. Radha Stirling emphasises the importance of taking preemptive measures, stating, "We recommend individuals who frequently travel, or who have visited those countries prone to Interpol abuse, to initiate Interpol Prevention measures well in advance of their next international flight."

With over 15 years of experience working closely with Interpol, Stirling’s IPEX team possesses unequalled expertise in navigating the complex landscape of international policing. Underscoring the organisation's deep understanding of Interpol's procedures, Stirling says, "Our expansive experience with Interpol enables us to successfully advocate for our clients and navigate the intricate processes involved; and to effectively liaise with Interpol officials on their behalf."

Interpol Prevention services provide clients with peace of mind through proactive and strategic actions. Upon reviewing each client's circumstances, IPEX will gauge the likelihood of a spurious Interpol listing. Leveraging their expertise, they implement preemptive measures to ensure the client's safety. Radha Stirling highlights the importance of their skilled approach, stating, "We have secured a mechanism where we can notify Interpol in advance of a likely Red Notice request, appeal potential wrongful listings, and request the suspension of notices pending the resolution process."

At IPEX resolution is at the core of our mission

Acting as liaisons between clients and relevant parties, including Interpol officials, local authorities, and officials from the client's home country, IPEX tirelessly works towards resolving potential issues before they escalate. Radha Stirling emphasises their commitment, saying, "Our team is dedicated to securing justice for our clients, ensuring their rights are protected and their reputations preserved."

When faced with the risk of an Interpol listing, individuals can turn to IPEX's Interpol Prevention services for comprehensive protection. By proactively addressing the issue, IPEX empowers clients to avoid the traumatic consequences of wrongful listings. CEO Radha Stirling reiterates the organisation's commitment, stating,

"At IPEX, we strive to provide our clients with peace of mind, ensuring their international travels are free from unwarranted disruptions”

Almost no one who has ever been detained at passport control expected it to happen. Even the most careful travellers might only go so far as to check the Interpol website to see if they find their name listed, not realising that the site only displays a sampling of Interpol’s database. “Issuing a Red Notice can occur so rapidly that someone may depart their home country unlisted, but listed by the time they arrive. For the overwhelming number of our clients, discovering that they have been subjected to a Red Notice comes as a shock because, more often than not, most of the countries that habitually abuse the system also conduct legal proceedings in absentia; so the client is not even aware that a criminal case exists against them,” Stirling explains, “This is why it is important for us to comprehensively review a client’s situation before they travel, to assess the likelihood that they may be vulnerable to Interpol listing based on criteria we have identified across thousands of cases. This enables us to pre-empt potential listings and insulate the client from the harm it would cause. Interpol abuse has become so prevalent over the past few years that initiating prevention procedures should really be the first point on everyone’s pre-travel checklist; before arranging a visa or getting travellers’ insurance."
