During the 82nd Interpol General Assembly held in Cartagena De Indias, Colombia between 21-24 October 2013 Rwanda, was unanimously voted to host the 84th Interpol General Assembly in 2015. CSP J Nepo Mbonyumuvunyi, the Director of Interpol has confirmed.
Since its formation 100 years ago, Rwanda will be the 5th African Country to host Interpol General Assembly after Senegal in 1992, Egypt in 1998, Cameroun in 2002, and Morocco in 2007.
Interpol is the second biggest world organization composed of 190 countries after the United Nations with a mission to connect all Police Institutions worldwide for a safer world. It’s expected that over 1000 delegates from all member states, private and public partners and other national and international organization will attend.
Rwanda was also appointed to the Interpol Executive Committee in 2011 during the 80th Interpol General Assembly in Hanoi/Vietnam with a delegate to represent Africa at Interpol General Secretariat (IPSG).
Rwanda has been hosting both regional and international Police events and no doubt this important session of Interpol Annually General Meeting (AGM) will be hosted at its highest required standards.
Interpol 82nd AGM to vote for Rwanda to host the 84th Interpol AGM is a clear manifestation of trust that International Community has for Rwanda within international cooperation regime.
