Interpol elects South Korea's Kim Jong Yang as president, Russia loses bid
2018-11-21 12:53:59

Interpol has elected South Korean Kim Jong-yang as its president, rejecting the Russian frontrunner who had been accused of abusing the international police body's arrest warrant system, the BBC reports. 

Mr Kim was chosen by Interpol's 194 member states at a meeting of its annual congress in Dubai.

He beat Russia's Alexander Prokopchuk, who had been widely tipped to win, despite concerns that he would use the role to target critics of Russia's President Putin.

Moscow hit back at what it called a "campaign aimed at discrediting" the Russian candidate.
