Prison » Senator Rand Paul Concerned Interpol Could Arrest Americans Under Foreign Laws

Paul suggested that new powers granted to Interpol by president Obama could see US citizens arrested or even extradited by the agency.

“I’m kind of concerned about having an international police force in our country with the ability, maybe, to extradite US citizens and send them to another country.” The Senator said.

Egypt, as you know over the last few months has been holding some American pro-Democracy workers in their country and they were going to try them on trumped up political charges. So a couple of months ago I said ‘you know what, we send two billion dollars to a country that treats us this way?’ So I tried to hold up their foreign aid, and as a consequence, part of what I was doing, they released our American citizens.”

“Then they came home and Secretary Clinton went and released their aid. I wrote her a letter and said she shouldn’t do it because these prosecutions were still ongoing.” The Senator said.

“They also made the US taxpayer pay a five million dollar ransom for these Americans to come home, promising they would come back to stand trial. But this week we have learned that Egypt has asked Interpol for a national warrant, they have these red letter warrants, that can be used anywhere in the world.”
