I Think I Have an Interpol Red Notice Out Against Me for UAE Debt

Written by Steve Rhode

“Dear Steve,

I am on a red alert wanted by interpol due to UAE debt left 2010. The US embassy has revoked my non-immigration visa due to this. The UK police have told me that i am at risk of being arrested if i travel outside UK due to being on red alert from interpol, i have also been told the UAE have been making applications for extraditions due to debt, so far the UK courts have not granted these requests but the red alert still remains, this is due to UAE listing unpaid debts as fraud.

The debt i left was 65,000dhs outstanding on loan and 7,000dhs on credit card.

I would prefer details of this not to be posted i just wanted to provide info incase someone els is worried about interpol red alert, they are still issuing them and they can affect travel outside UAE.”

Who has told you this?

You can check to see if you are on any wanted list by visiting the Interpol site, here. Your email address appears to contain your name and I did a search using that. There were no hits.

An Interpol Red Notice or Red Alert is not an international arrest warrant. Likewise, there are no such thing as globe trotting Interpol police officers who can execute arrest warrants. Rather, the Red Notice is simply a request for the arrest and extradition of an individual for whom an arrest warrant has been issued in the requesting country.

According to the Interpol website there are only 160 people in the entire world that are wanted for banking or financial crimes.

If you are worried about an open case against you in the UAE you should contact a lawyer to represent you in the UAE and negotiate a suitable repayment plan with the creditors.

  • hi
    I am also a victim of UAE business collapse and I had to leave back to my home country Canada,
    I was told that a red notice will be issued but I have no way to verify this, as the only red notice does not list all notices, so how can we verify if our name is listed or not?
    Is there a formal way to know?
