INTERPOL special representative presents Credentials to the African Union

Chairperson of the African Union (AU) Commission, Dr Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma has officially received the credentials of Special INTERPOL Representative to the African Union, Francis Rwego.

Following the presentation at the AU headquarters in Addis Ababa, the special representative and Commission Chairperson discussed key areas of cooperation including the fight against organized crime, drug and human trafficking and terrorism.

This is the third INTERPOL special representative office to be opened around the world. In 2004, INTERPOL opened a special representative office to the United Nations in New York, and in 2009, to the European Union in Brussels.

The INTERPOL office at the AU headquarters is an important step in identifying and developing new areas for cooperation between the two institutions in joint efforts to enhance regional and global security.
