Ronald Noble: Secretary General of Interpol

This is Ronald K. Noble, the Secretary General of Interpol. Here is his biography. Mr. Noble, an American citizen, is a tenured Professor of Law at New York University School of Law. He holds a Juris Doctorate Degree from Stanford University Law School. Mr Noble speaks French, German, Spanish, and English. He became Secretary General in 2000 and was unanimously reelected to a second term in 2005.

On Thursday, May 15, 2008, Interpol endorsed the authenticity of computer files seized in a FARC rebel camp.

At a press conference in Bogota, Columbia on May 15, 2008, Mr. Noble stated:

No person, no country, and not even INTERPOL, the world’s largest international police organization, can fully understand the extent to which the terrorist group FARC has prevented the Colombian people from leading their lives as freely as possible without fear of deadly attack, kidnapping, extortion or other crimes.

Only in the last 10 years, FARC has perpetrated 16,500 terrorist attacks; murdered 7,500 people; injured another 9,500; and kidnapped more than 12,000.

The father of your President was just one of the many victims murdered by the FARC. Several presidential candidates have been kidnapped by the FARC. Elected officials, civil servants, police officers and ordinary citizens – all of them have suffered at the hand of the FARC [Full text].

Interpol's forensic computer investigation demonstrated that Colombia did not tamper with computer documents indicating that Venezuela's President Chavez sought to finance and arm the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC.

Here is the Interpol Press Release and Interpol's Forensic Report on FARC Computers and Hardware Seized by Columbia.

FOX News (5-16-08) reports that Chavez responded to Interpol's report in his usual buffoonish manner:

Chavez responded sarcastically to Interpol's conclusions.

"Do you think we should waste time here on something so ridiculous?" he told reporters in Caracas.

Chavez has denied providing the FARC material support, but did not address the issue directly on Thursday. Instead, he called Interpol's secretary general, Ronald Noble, "a tremendous actor," "Mr. Ignoble" and an "immoral police officer who applauds killers."

I think Chavez shows a lot of contempt for his own people and for the international community when he lies so brazenly and so stupidly about his support of terrorism. I have written about what the documents in the computers said in previous posts. Search Chavez.
