BY JOAN WANJIKU,NAIROBI,25TH NOV,2021-The Director of Criminal Investigations, George Kinoti, has been elected to the Interpol executive committee.
Kinoti was elected during the 89th session of the Interpol General Assembly, in Istanbul, Turkey on Thursday.
He will be a member for a three-year- term.
The DCI chief who was voted in overwhelmingly will represent Africa at the key security organ, that brings together over 195 member states from across the world.
Kinoti’s election is an endorsement of the strategies in the management of crime, especially in counter terrorism, organised crime, cyber crime and transnational crimes among others.
“It is also a vote of confidence in the Directorate of Criminal Investigations at the global stage,” DCI said.
While making his acceptance speech, Kinoti acknowledged the efforts put in place by member countries in crime management.
“The realization that we cannot fight this monster alone has contributed to the successes that we have registered so far across the world as a result of cooperation & information sharing between our different countries and security agencies,” said the DCI chief.
Established over 100 years ago, Interpol works in conjunction with all member countries and international organizations including the United Nations to combat international crime.
