Recently, Syria regained access to the databases of Interpol. This means that Syria can again share police data and information, on the basis of equality. The podcast Wereldmachten looked into the organization and system of Interpol. There are examples of autocratic countries that abuse the system of the so-called red notices, a sort of 'blacklist' with wanted criminals. These regimes abuse the list in search for fugitive dissidents, activists, journalists or human rights defenders. 

Lawyer Frederieke Dölle was interviewed for the podcast and spoke about what people can do if they are confronted with the far reaching influence of authoritarian regimes and the issuing of a red notice. You can listen to the episode at Spotify (in Dutch).
