Thomas Ragland to Speak at The Heritage Foundation Panel
On Tuesday, October 29, 2019, Thomas Ragland will take part in a panel discussion entitled “Assessing the Potential of the TRAP Act to Prevent Interpol Abuse,” sponsored by The Heritage Foundation.
Interpol is a valuable partner in the fight against transnational crime and terrorism, but autocratic governments around the world have realized that they can manipulate Interpol’s system of alerts to harass journalists, political opponents, and businesspeople. The bipartisan TRAP Act (Transnational Repression Accountability and Prevention Act) seeks to put the U.S. in the forefront of the fight against Interpol abuse. The panel will assess the problem of Interpol abuse and the TRAP Act’s potential to prevent it.
