ZRP Boss Fumes Over Interpol’s Refusal To Arrest & Extradite ‘G40 Kingpins’

Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) Commissioner-General Godwin Matanga said that the International Criminal Police Organisation (Interpol) is refusing to cooperate for the extradition of Zimbabweans who committed crimes here and fled to other countries.

Speaking before the Portfolio Committee on Foreign Affairs and International Trade chaired by Makonde legislator Kindness Paradza to contribute towards the recently gazetted, International Treaties Bill on Tuesday, Com-Gen Matanga said:

We are a member of Interpol and there is a facility where, as a country, we file red notices with Interpol to bring back offenders to the country and of late there has been a development with Interpol where they suspect that the ZRP is laying some politically motivated allegation against an individual.

Interpol has categorically said they will not help and where a person runs away from Zimbabwe and is given refugee status in a particular country again Interpol will not assist.

In August this year, reports surfaced claiming that Interpol refused to cooperate with the government of Zimbabwe in its bid to have Robert Mugabe-era cabinet Ministers arrested and extradited.

Walter Mzembi and former ZANU PF political commissar, Saviour Kasukuwere, are some of the high profile people facing various criminal charges back home.
