3 British Nationals arrested in 3 months in Europe on Interpol notices issued by UAE banks for minor unpaid credit card or loan payments

3 British Nationals arrested in 3 months in Europe on Interpol notices issued by UAE banks for minor unpaid credit card or loan payments

Interpol is allowing itself to be illegally used as a debt collection agency by UAE banks. The UAE is a generous contributor to Interpol's coffers, having pledged $54 million in 2016. Brits who miss a credit card or loan payment and leave the country have their debt falsely classified as fraud by the UAE so they can list the defaulter with Interpol for the purposes of extradition.
