Emirati general France investigates accusations of "barbaric acts" of Interpol chief The French Anti-Terrorism Public Prosecution Office has opened a preliminary investigation into charges of “torture” and “barbaric acts” against Emirati General Ahmed Nasser Al Raisi, who in November took office as Interpol.  The French Anti-Terrorism Public Prosecution Office has opened a preliminary investigation into charges of "torture" and "barbaric acts" against Emirati General Ahmed Nasser Al Raisi, who took office in November, judicial sources announced Thursday.  The opening of the investigation follows a complaint filed by non-governmental organizations accusing Al-Raisi of torturing opposition figures while he held a high position in the Ministry of Interior.  In the complaint filed in January by the "Gulf Center for Human Rights", a non-governmental organization, the center accused the main practice of "torture" and of "barbaric acts" against the opposition Ahmed Mansour in Abu Dhabi.  The complaint, which was submitted to the Public Prosecution Office for Combating Terrorism in France, included charges of crimes against humanity.  Human rights organizations have previously accused Al-Raisi of torture, after his candidacy for the position of Interpol president, expressing their fear that repressive regimes will exploit the organization.  But despite this, Al-Raisi was elected president of the organization in November, following a generous financial donation by the UAE to the organization, based in Lyon.  Abu Dhabi was also accused of using the "red notices" system issued by Interpol to prosecute suspects in persecuting political opponents.  The International Criminal Police Organization "Interpol" is a body tasked with combating crimes, and the position of the President of INTERPOL is an honorary position, as the organization's Secretary-General conducts business in it.  According to Interpol, "the Secretary-General is responsible for day-to-day affairs", while "the president holds an unpaid and part-time position", and his main task is to chair the General Assembly and three sessions of the Executive Committee per year.  The organization explained to AFP that its president "carries full-time official duties in his country, and is not a permanent resident of Lyon."  It also affirmed that its members, "including the president, benefit from privileges and immunities in the exercise of their functions and the fulfillment of their functions in the organization, but not for their personal affairs."
