Dubai: Interpol has elected South Korean Kim Jong-yang as its president, rejecting the controversial Russian frontrunner. Kim was chosen by Interpol’s 194 member states at a meeting of its annual congress in Dubai, BBC reported on Wednesday. He beat Russia’s Alexander Prokopchuk, who has been accused of using Interpol’s arrest warrant system to target critics of the Kremlin. Russia blamed the outcome of the voting on “unprecedented pressure and interference”. The election follows the disappearance of Interpol’s former president Meng Hongwei, who vanished on a trip to China in September. (IANS)
