    So, someone who has settled in USA can be arrested and taken back to their own country for expressing their political beliefs in a non violent manner?

    Was Interpol involved in Julian Assange's arrest and extradition procedures?

    Interpol Issues ‘Red Notice’ for Arrest of WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange (Wired)

    Interpol appears to be operating as a police force for the status quo internationally.

    Devoting their time to that facet of affairs certainly lessens the time they spend tracking those who disappear, or are disappeared, over national borders.
