China's use of the Interpol system has been a subject of concern and scrutiny, with reports and investigations highlighting potential abuses and misuse of Interpol's tools, particularly Red Notices. Red Notices are alerts issued to seek the arrest and extradition of individuals wanted by national jurisdictions.

"Egyptian prisons are infamous for their inhumane treatment of prisoners, and documented instances of torture and abuse are disturbingly common. At a time when Egypt is actively seeking, and very badly needs, support for its tourism sector, it may seem shocking that a Western visitor could be subjected to such outrageous actions by the police; however, foreign nationals must bear in mind that Egypt has largely become a police state over the past 7 years, with a dramatic spike in rates of incarceration, mass trials, deaths in custody, and an erosion of judicial independence. Civil rights and basic freedoms have been increasingly curtailed and democratic norms simply do not apply in the country. " Radha Stirling, CEO and founder of Detained in Dubai

As an expert on Interpol abuse and human rights violations, Radha Stirling has been deeply concerned about the misuse of Interpol's mechanisms by the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The UAE's exploitation of Interpol as a tool for debt collection has had severe consequences for thousands of people, jeopardizing their lives, plans, and futures. The misuse of Interpol's Red Notices by the UAE has resulted in innocent individuals facing obstacles such as denial of entry or leave to remain in foreign countries, primarily due to civil matters, particularly debt-related issues. They have been subjected to lengthy extradition trials and detentions for no reason, costing them both financially and emotionally. Reputations have been damaged and careers undermined by these abusive Red Notices, and the UAE has become one of the worst and most prolific abusers of the Interpol system.
