This is Why You Can’t Find Ex Prez. Mahama’s Brother On Interpol’s Website
Earlier, there were reports that suggested that The International Criminal Police Organisation (Interpol) had issued an arrest warrant for Samuel Adam Fosters aka Samuel Adam Mahama in connection with his role in the Airbus bribery scandal. He is being charged for accepting bribe to influence a public officer and acting in collaboration with a public officer for the public officers’ private gain.
However, a search on Interpol’s for Mahama’s name shows no result, leading many to conclude that the red alert might be fake or simply not genuine.
Your trusted news source, EonlineGH.Com did a little background check and here’s what we have discovered.
There are currently approximately 62,000 valid Red Notices, of which some 7,000 are public. The majority of Red Notices are restricted to law enforcement use only.
In this case, we believe this Red Notice was among the many issued to law enforcement use only and was ‘leaked’ to the media. The purpose of issuing an alert is to to locate and provisionally arrest a person pending his extradition, surrender, or similar legal action.
In some cases, for example where the public’s help is needed to locate an individual or they pose a threat to public safety, a public extract of the Red Notice is then published on their website. Therefore the fact that the red alert was not officially published on their website doesn’t mean it’s not authentic. There are about 55,000 alerts that have been issued but weren’t published on their website.
We believe this explains and cast away all doubts about authenticity of the Red Alert in circulation.
