Evelyn Sheehan Lays Out Strategies Against INTERPOL Abuse in Federal Bar Session
September 21, 2021
Authoritarian governments have increasingly abused INTERPOL’s systems to harass and seek the extradition of dissidents and other political targets. Kobre & Kim’s Evelyn Sheehan, a former U.S. Department of Justice prosecutor who often represents clients in INTERPOL criminal matters, will join a panel on INTERPOL abuse at 1:00 pm Miami time, September 23, during the Federal Bar Association’s 2021 Annual Meeting & Convention at the Hilton Downtown Miami.
During the CLE-eligible panel, “Emerging Frontiers of INTERPOL Abuse,” Ms. Sheehan will discuss how the organization functions; how governments abuse the system beyond Red Notices – such as using diffusions, passport cancellations or the use of INTERPOL to bypass the lack of extradition treaties – even inside the United States; and strategies attorneys can use to protect their clients against this abuse.
Ms. Sheehan will be joined by Theodore (Ted) Bromund of the Heritage Foundation; Michelle Estlund of Estlund Law, P.A.; Sandra Grossman of Grossman Young & Hammond; and Fernando Tamayo of Coffey Burlington Attorneys at Law. The panel will also be streamed online.
