Who Are The World's Most Wanted? Dawwod Ibrahim Head of the Indian Muslim Mafia Tops the List Says INTERPOL.

Friendly and unassuming, Wayne Corliss, 59, played Santa at kids’ parties in his Union City, N.J., neighborhood. But Corliss wasn’t what he seemed. Only a police bust halfway around the globe and the involvement of an international crime-fighting agency would eventually expose his secret life.

When police in Norway raided the home of a child pornographer in 2006, they found Internet photos of an unknown man abusing young boys. The photos were sent to Interpol, the international organization whose mission is to combat crime that spans more than one country.

Interpol is especially prominent in cases of terrorism, child abuse, and fraud, and in locating fugitives from justice. Interpol passed the photos on to authorities in other countries without results.

Then, in 2008, the agency sent the photos to media worldwide, asking the public for leads. E-mailed tips identified Corliss, and less than 48 hours later, U.S. customs agents (ICE) were knocking on his door. Ultimately, he was convicted and put in prison for producing child pornography.

Interpol’s global reach has become critical in tracking and shutting down crime in the 21st century, which increasingly takes place across borders. “They’re in Russia. Africa.
It’s someone tricking you by e-mail into sending your bank-account number. Someone putting a virus in your computer to take it over and use it without your knowledge.”

Established in 1923 and based in Lyon, France, Interpol is short for International Criminal Police Organization. It is staffed by a rotating group of top police officers from among its 187 member countries, which supply its $65 million annual budget.

The agency currently is led by its first-ever American secretary general, Ronald K. Noble. When he took over in 2000, Noble recalls, Interpol was closed on weekends and sent out its most-urgent alerts by slow third-class mail. One year later, however, 9/11 changed Interpol and the world.

Today, the agency operates around the clock, and its records give police in individual countries access to the fingerprints of 85,000 criminals, 82,000 DNA profiles, and information on 13,000 suspected terrorists. The agency also keeps the world’s only database of lost or stolen passports and other travel documents.

Stolen passports “are as important as weapons,” noted the 9/11 Commission, the U.S. government panel that officially investigated the attacks. At least two of the 9/11 hijackers entered this country by using doctored passports. Interpol’s passport database is now in operation at U.S. airports and soon may be available at all American border checkpoints.

Interpol maintains its own global “wanted” lists. [See related slideshow: The World's Most Wanted] While the organization makes no arrests itself, its staffers work with law-enforcement agencies around the world to conduct and coordinate investigations.

In 2008, the agency’s notices resulted in the arrests of 5200 people charged with offenses such as war crimes, human trafficking, money laundering, Internet fraud, art theft, and kidnapping.

Interpol’s ability to combat crime depends upon law-enforcement officials in its member nations to openly and efficiently pool their information. At any time, Interpol has alerts out on more than 1,000 people; the ones here are just a small sample. Some have been convicted of crimes but have evaded sentencing.

When law-enforcement agencies believe a convicted or suspected criminal has fled their country, they may ask Interpol to issue an alert, or notice, which will be circulated worldwide. Its color signifies the purpose.

For example, a red notice, the highest-level alert, seeks the arrest of a person with a view to extradition, while a black notice is looking for leads on an unidentified body.

Lebanese-born Oussama Kassir was wanted by U.S. authorities for allegedly setting up a terrorist training camp in Bly, Ore. Thanks to a red notice, he was caught in 2005 in the Prague airport while on a layover between Sweden, which wouldn’t extradite him, and Lebanon, ”where he would have vanished,” says Tom Fuentes, a former assistant director at the FBI. “We wouldn’t have gotten him without Interpol.”
