Grace Meng (in picture, does not want to show her face), the wife of Former President of the International Criminal Police Organization (INTERPOL) has filed a suit against the body, claiming that INTERPOL has failed to protect her family and tried to intimidate her into keeping silent. She launched legal proceedings against INTERPOL at the Permanent Court of Arbitration in The Hague. Meng added that the proceedings were aimed at determining whether the international policing body had “breached its obligations owed” to her family.
She added that a tribunal would be set up to ascertain Interpol’s claims that Meng’s disappearance was “only a matter for the relevant authorities in France and China”, or whether the global institution “breached its obligations owed to my family”.
France, has reportedly granted asylum to Grace Meng.
