Red Notice Monitor Editors, Ben Keith and Rhys Davies, contribute to Sky News podcast series, 'Dirty Work: The Misuse of Interpol Red Notices'.
In the final episode, Sky News investigates the stories of dissidents and opposition figures around the world for whom Red Notices are the latest tool for transnational repression by autocratic governments:
With expert analysis from Rhys Davies and Ben Keith - authors of Red Notice Monitor - we take a look at the worst case scenarios for being on the wrong end of a Red Notice.
Sahar meets Zeynure and her three children. They are Uyghur exiles living in Istanbul. Zeynure's husband, Idris Hasan, has been in prison in Morocco for two years facing extradition to China. Uyghur activists like Idris are increasingly at risk of Red Notices, experts tell us, as China has increased its use of Interpol as a tool of transnational repression. Sahar talks to Idris, who says this Red Notice has been a death sentence. A potential return to China is "worse than death."
