An alliance of international legislators, including Republicans in Congress and exiled Chinese activists, is opposing efforts by a top Chinese internal security official to join the leadership of Interpol.

Hu Binchen, the deputy director general for the Chinese Ministry of Public Security, is one of three candidates from Asia running for the region’s two spots on Interpol’s 13-member executive committee, with the vote being held during the group’s annual congress in Turkey on Thursday.

Interpol, with its 194 members, controls a vast quantity of law enforcement data and legal databases that are shared with its membership, including China, which has long been accused of abusing Interpol to go after Chinese dissidents and others who criticize the Communist Party.

The Inter-Parliamentary Alliance on China, a group comprising legislators from around the world who advocate standing up to the Communist Party, released a letter this month condemning Hu Binchen’s bid to join Interpol, calling upon international leaders to oppose the Chinese official’s candidacy and to reform Interpol’s “Red Notice” system for pursuing fugitives, which they said is exploited by China.
